I managed to finish my recent project tonight I think they call it a pedestal table height 25'' width 91/2'' the maximum i can turn on my lathe. The reason behind this project is the coffee table was replaced with a side board unit to put my wood turnings so had to make something for my better half to put her coffee on.

very nice little table Paul. The finish looks really well. A table like that is always handy to have as it can fit into any room without taking up much space. well done.

Thankyou for your replys as alway's the wood is a light oak thanks to our local joiner who im sad to say is retiring so the end of my off cuts from him. The finish was sanded to 400 grit two coats of sand another rub with 400 then two coats of wax. I got to practice on the photo's as mine dont seem to do my turnings justice.

Excellent Paul, I think you can now consider yourself a proficient turner.
Regarding you photo you need another light source to soften the flash, place the table near a window when the sun is shining or take the photo outside and use flash as well.
