Black ash coffee table

black ash coffee table

This Black ash coffee table was put together using 12 separate pieces of salvaged black ash that were approximately 4″ thick, 20″ long, giving an overall width of 3 feet.

I used a dado blade to groove each board to accept spline tenons. I then drew 1″ grid lines to map out the pattern. I used a router to mill pattern lines to a 3/8″ depth, and used a Foredom and a lot of hand sanding to complete the shaping.

To round the edges of outside profile I used a Makita die grinder with different rasp bits. The black lines and white dots are ecopoxy inlaid. The finish is three coats of teak oil followed by 3 coats of clear gloss varathane.
