I was not in Delaware to select the wood that I’m using for my table, but dad knew how much I liked the grain pattern in my Baby Cradle in the raised Panels. The project for the cradle is here The cradle had Satin Maple, and the Thorsen Side Table has Curly Beech.

We were trying to keep to dad’s sub series of ”The Uniqueness of Woods”. We wanted all woods with a clear finish and no stains. This Curly Beech table allowed me to do that. The pegs are African Blackwood.

The cutouts patterns were made with the jig shown in dad’s blog. My blog on this table The cutouts were just cut 1/8” deep and did not go through the aprons in order to allow the grain patters to flow through out the entire apron.

My table has a monogram in the table top
Dan also had one in his table

This is a picture of all six tables in the series ”Our Uniqueness of Woods”

Additional pictures for all of the tables are here on the right is the sets of tables’ pictures.

Karrie – your table is beautiful. I love the “soft” feel of the wood with the subtle patterns through it.
