This was my first crack at mortise and tenon joinery. I used African mahogany and ambrosia maple. I created this for a friend of mine who had commented that he wished he had a small table to pray at. I’m pleased with how it looks. I’m currently building one for my wife out of walnut and maple.
How to do this project
Basically it’s cut, glue, wait, repeat. I used a table saw for the tenons and a mortise press for the mortises. Cleaned everything up with a chisel and sandpaper. Props to my wife on the finish work
