A Games Table we made for a customer some time ago, constructed from 16 different types of timber.

The Cabinet Makers and French Polishers did a superb job on this one.

The table top is decorated with oysters of Laburnum cut directly from the log into quarter inch slices; each piece is then book-matched to another and laid in pairs in the traditional manner.

The internal sides of the kneehole are proportionally matched to the top, its internal sides are decorated with a panel of quilted Maple strung in Kingswood, Boxwood and Ebony, and cross-banded in Walnut.

Each hand-made drawer is dovetailed with a traditional centre dovetail flanked by out splayed dovetails
