I built this table for a Delta Flight Attendent we met on one of our trips to Russia. The legs are turned from cypress, the stretchers are popular, the top is maple with cherry bread board ends. The bread board ends are attacted to the top with pegged thru tenons. The top is actually two boards glued up that came out of one borad that was long enough to build the complete top. It also has two Shaker style end tales I built for her at the same time that sits on either side of the table with lamps on them. The drawers have cherry ply bottoms in them.

I have always been a fan of differnt color bread-board edges…especially when they compliment another beautiful wood like tiger maple. Sometimes if they are too sharp of a contrast, it is distracting. However, your choice of woods and color combinations look very nice.
Well done.

Thanks guys for all your nice compliments. The photos do not do the table justice and this table is part of a collection of tables we biuld. The table actually started out several years ago to be a new computer work station for “me” in our home ( wifey approved since our home has mostly period furinture in it ). Wifey and daughter came to the shop to get it and put it in the house. When I got home my new table was in daughter’s bedroom..need to say no more. With her gorgeous smile and sweet voice thus the end tables show up next. I still don’t have me a table like that but many more people do. Ok boys the flight attendent.
We met her on an overniter to Moscow. She was young, fresh out of college, this was her first real job,just bought her first starter home and was working an her Master’s. We liked the kid and her ambitions. Most of her furniture was from Craig’s List because she had no money. I had lot’s of wood and had to build another table like that one so I built her one too and we gave it to her. That gift has gotten me orders for more just like it from people she knew and we consider her a family firnd now…don’t help on those airfares to Moscow though lol.
