Mahogany Settee – Project of the Week
Added on June 6, 2008
This week’s project comes from Shannon. He writes:
Here are a few pictures of the settee that I built for my wife. It is made of Honduran Mahogany, all with mortise and tenon joints. The cabriolet legs took some work, especially with the wings. I finished it with a blend of solar flux stains, and finished it with 3 coats of a satin poly. I had the foam custom cut, and upholstered it with my wife’s choice of fabric. It was a fun project. I did all the mortising by hand. I just bought a Leigh FMT jig, but have not used it (It sure would have come in handy for this). Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing what you produce next.
