I call this my tablecloth table. It is 30” high and 19” in diameter. The turned 3 legged base is maple. The cloth looking top is carved mahogany stained with red aniline dye. The cloth look skirt on the table is made from 3” thick spanish ceder wood carved to appear as if it drapes over the edge and mitered into segments to form almost a full circle. (I couldn’t afford that thickness in mahogany). The table top that’s showing is tiger stripe maple with a routed edge. The cloth look top section has been rabbited to glue the maple top piece into it. It is now a solid top attached to the red dyed wood.

This is a fantastic table all around: the turning, the cabriole legs, and especially the carving, beautiful work. I’m confused though, is the “table cloth” made from mahogany or spanish cedar?

The top is mahogany, and the wood that drapes down from the top is spanish cedar.

Beautiful and fanciful at the same time ….......... and excellent work.
Is the “cloth” attached or can you take it off?

The top and the cloth area that appears to be pushed back is mahogany. The wood that appears to drape down from the table top is spanish cedar because I needed 3” stock to make it appear to have waves in the cloth.

Wendel Castle would be proud to see this work that you have done. I saw his “Ghost Clock” was shown at the Smithsonian. Your table is on the same plane as his.
