This piece is my interpretation of the Greene & Greene Gamble House Dining Table.
Part of the challenge was making the slide system. At the time I did not know how the original slides were made, so I came up with my own way – which worked fine but was not how the original was done. As usual I took liberties with the design – most notably I slightly altered the Tsuba (Japanese sword guard) shape of the top and made the solid edging even more proud than the original.

Having recently been to the Gamble house, I am happy to see a progression of the Green and Green style of furniture making. I enjoy the ebony accents but will be using mesquite in my own (I live in the desert).
I can apreciate how much work went to your project and have to give you kudo’s galore.
Congrats, Kimball

Thanks Kimball,
I took a few liberties with my version of the Gamble Table – it’s not an exact copy.
Yes there is a bit of work in this table – much of it under the table in the extension mechanism.

Beautiful G&G work. I lover the table edge. After I saw this I had to go back and look at your whole gallery and there is some amazing work coming out of you shop. Very talented

I am new to LJ’s and I was wondering if you (Darrell) or anyone can give me some advice. I am planning to make a Gamble Table but I am coverting it to a coffee table. My question is how did you design the edging of the table to perfectly match the table top?
