Ahh... the brilliance of youth...

You might remember that I posted this photo last year, featuring a complex joint that one of my students was playing with - this was the mock-up, made of scrap material. It's an interlocking mortise and tenon corner, perfect for a four-legged table. 

 Chris finally finished the table, in solid Walnut with a few Maple butterflies thrown in - 

to keep a crack from expanding. 

This table was glowing from the finish he applied - Watco, wet-sanded, followed by an application of paste-wax.

 Chris is on his way to NYC, where he'll begin his studies in the Masters in Architecture program  at Columbia. 

And we wish him all the luck in the world!
