Just finished this solid mahogany foyer table. There are mortise and floating tenon joints throughout, first time trying those. I'm really happy on how the top turned out, it took around an hour of sanding from some pretty rough stock but it grain really shines.

I used about 5 or 6 coats of general finishes poly acrylic in satin. I use the poly acrylic for all of my projects, it's very durable and pretty easy to apply to get a smooth finish.

Thanks. It's fairly heavy, I got the mahogany from three different places so I'm not quite sure on the species. The top is from Rockler, the legs/apron wood I got from a lumber yard and the bottom shelf is quarter sawn mahogany I bought online.
