Queen Anne table in cherry. My first attempt at half blind dovetails by hand – took a while compared to machine!

Beautiful work. How about a close up of your B&C feet?

Good looking piece and nice dovetails. I have one of those shop helpers but she rarely stays in the shop other than to inspect it.

Very beautiful work, and challenging too! Do you do a lot of carving? Have you done many B&C feet?

That’s a beautiful Queen Anne table! The cherry looks great, your dovetails are first rate, and I just love the overall look of it!
