Rosewood Console Table #4

Rosewood Console Table: Assembly


The best step of any project had finally arrived, the final assembly!  We tackled the final assembly in five small steps, rather than trying to build the entire table all at once.  The picture above shows the final glue-up.

We are quite fond of how the final piece turned out! The grain color and pattern is stunning, especially when the sunlight hits it!


This console table is being shipped off to a client in San Francisco, so we crated it up, and then needed to estimate a shipping weight.  We don’t have a scale of any kind at the shop, but my brother and I put our collective heads together, hearkened back to the good old days, and constructed a scale from a 12′ long pallet and a 2×4.  The final shipping weight for the crate was 350 pounds, and the crate could not have weighed more than 50 pounds!
