Kitchen table

After remodeling the bathroom counter upstairs, there was plenty of granite left from the slab to make a table. Originally we thought to put it outside with some new teak chairs, so I made the table legs and apron from teak. I think it looks very good!

Here’s the router jig I made to make the mortises in the legs at 45 deg to the surface:

Luckily, the brown in the granite is the same color as a ruddy Abyssinian:

The teak was glued using T88 epoxy for its water resistance and finished with TeakGuard. The granite was fabricated by Chris Milev at EHI Granite (www.ehigranite.com). The cat’s name is Dozi.
