Window Tables

Over in the WoodNet Woodworking Forum, member kscott posted photos of his latest project, a set of window tables he made for his wife. I assume thy are called window tables because you place them under a window to hold house plants, hence the marble in the table top. The wood is mahogany.

Different colors of mahogany originally all dyed with Moser's alcohol soluble dye. Bush oil followed by Deft. First time I used either. Lots of experiments on sample pieces before I went for it. Dyed before assembly and finished after.
More photos and discussion in the forum.
