this has been one of the most challenging and time consuming projects ive made,a g&g inspired wall table made from solid mahogany 17”x 60” x 33” high.i have always wanted to do some g&g so after visiting the gamble house in Pasadena on a tour led my master woodworker jim ipekjian,who recreated all the furniture for the blacker house I had my inspiration to get started.this piece is a combination of various g&g elements some I took from Darrell pearts books,and the bulk from actual pieces from the gamble house.i used a jig from ing woodworking in Anaheim ca.to make the stepped ebony spline on the top,which saved a huge amount of time.all construction is mortise and tenon using a domino 500.the drawers are solid mahogany with a wood runner on the bottom.the handles are from Darrell.all square plugs are ebony.the finish on this is 5 coats of penofin interior grade oil.comments and suggestions are very welcome especially if your checking this out Darrell.

Outstanding work. It’s crisp without losing the softness of the pillowed edges.

You seem to be a natural.

Beautiful G&G hall table—well done! All the details are there, and one well. It must really be satisfying to have it in your home, and get to see it every day!

The first thing that caught my eye was the unique approach to the cloud lifts. It looks like they are separate pieces rather than part of the horizontal supports. Is that correct? They certainly convey the cloud lift quite well. Your drawer details are also very nice as well as the handles. Gorgeous piece.
