    I am in the proces of restoring a  salon table wich my brother in law was throwing away.

    Had to do a lot of scraping and sanding on the legs to get rid of the old finish.

    The tabletop had some moulding on the top which i didn’t like so i decided to turn the tabletop upside down and changed the moulding in a bevel.

    For the rails i used this darker contrast wood(don’t know the species) wich i had to resaw to width.

    Just made the mortice and tenon joints using Paul’s method in the legs and rails and are ready for dry fitting.

    It’s been alot of work, especially the resawing was quite the exercise,but slowly i am getting there.

    It’s nice to see people re-cycling furniture.There is so much what is called brown furniture in the UK going very cheaply because nobody wants it.Very often the piece contains solid oak or elm pieces of wood which can be re-cycled into a new piece of furniture.Where I live in Brittany it’s very large wardrobes that are available that don’t fit into modern houses because of their size.I just love buying them stripping them down to make new furniture.

    Looks like your rails might be Mahogany but they look pretty dark, do they have a finish on them?  Looking forward to the finished table also 🙂

    Hello Martin, don’t know what the wood is(the color has a red/brown look) but do know it is incredible hard,it took me ages to resaw them.

    I haven’t put any finish on anything yet .

    The table is finally finished, i have attached the top with turn buttons (hope this is the correct name for it) and finished the table with two coats of Danish oil and furniture wax.(the table top has no finish on the photo’s ,wil be doing that today).

    As you can see in the picture of the bevel on the underside of the table top i made the mistake of scribing the line with a marking gouge instead of with a pencil,but as they say ,we learn something everyday.

    juryaan…..Table looks great, nice work buddy

    I actually  like the effect of scribing the line with a marking gauge, I’m going to try that 😉

    Nice job Juryaan,

    You have given a table a second life,

    I like the point Ken makes about the brown furniture going cheap in the UK I must get to go to one of the auctions to see what there is
