“I have finished designing and I have just begun the production of a new furniture piece, a dining table and chairs. This dining set will be similar to the “Griffin Table” that I made over four years ago. I posted the finished end table here on Lumberjocks. “If you would like to see it here is the link to the Griffin Table
For the dining table I have made a few design changes to the legs and to the marquetry to the top of the dining table. I will be working on the table legs first. The main changes to the legs are the lions face and mane. I wanted to give him more of a traditional majestic look. Here are a few pictures of the design drawing and of the glue up.
The next stage will be to begin carving out the table legs . I will post pictures of my progress showing the different stages in a series of blogs.
Thanks for looking and happy woodworking.
Clamping the blocks of mahogany to the main section, to be carved as Eagle Wings.
The block mounted to a Wilton Schiller Power Arm, which is amazingly strong.
