There are small jobs, and then there are really small jobs! I repaired a small table (you can see it in the last picture) and the client asked me to build a 1:12 replica. Sawing, routing, shaping, and clamping are all very different at 1:12 scale!
I tried to keep the details as authentic as possible. The table top and shelf are quartersawn oak, the apron is a four-piece assembly, the top is a two-piece glue-up, the saw marks are left on the inside edge of the apron, each curved leg is jointed to the top and shelf, not just glued, and the dimensions are scaled from the original piece.
I built five tables – three oak, one walnut, and one mahogany.
