Quartersawn Red oak. Nice little table that needs a companion. I’ve been meaning to make a coffee table to go with this one…

Sweet! Another one tonight…you have been “sandbagging” have you? This apopears to be finished a little differently that the other two tonight? Keep it up.

Ya, I’m blitzing all at once. The finish on this one is probably different because the wood is QS red oak, where the others were QS White Oak.

Dennis – I too love A&C…expecially Sitckley pieces designed by Harvey Ellis. There’s a few that I’d like to copy. I grew up outside East Aurora, NY which is the home of the Roycroft. So the Roycroft work is near to my heart as well.

Thanks for the compliments JockMike

John, I’ve just had a look at your work. It’s excellent. I particularly like your mirror.

One of the things I love about this community is the number of artists that work in the Arts & Crafts genre.

Keep them coming, John.

John: is the tenon on the front a thru tenon or an addon. The grain structure seem to be different from the apron.

Shhhh Karson…
I faked that one. I used a nice way to join the apron to the leg with a sliding dovetail. That worked out great, but I still wanted the look of the through tenon. I’ve become more careful these days if I choose to fake it. I will actually mortise in the fake through tenon in a shallow 1/4 inch mortse, and make sure the grain all makes sense.

Hi RonR,

I’ve bought hardware from 3 main sources. If memory serves me correctly, the hardware for this table is a cast copper of decent quality that came from:
http://www.winterbrookfarmantiques.com/product_info.php?products_id=786?osCsid=a0ece3e50edd781148ffc7c188c63a06

Another place I’ve bought is here (can’t beat the price on these cast bronze pulls):
http://www.dlawlesshardware.com/anbrassticpu.html

One last is VanDykes…plenty of selection and decent prices:

Thanks for the compliments.

John,

Thanks for the links! The prices seem pretty reasonable, too. My next project will be either a craftsman style TV table or a craftsman style desk. Both will have need of drawer or door pulls and I would like something that looks authentic. These should do the trick. Thanks again.
