Reproduction Queen Anne side table in Pennsylvania cherry.
Features include pinned Mortise and Tenon joinery, Cabriole Legs, Dovetailed Drawers and a new top attachment technique I just learned to adjust for seasonal expansion and contraction due to humidity.
Period correct profiles and edging were included.
It is finished with several coats of cherry Danish Oil and will receive a top coat of Polyurethane for protection after the oil dries.
A fun, but challenging piece for me to build.
(I’ve included several project build shots below if you’d like to see them.)
Thanks for looking.
Beautiful Pennsylvania cherry
Cabriole Leg Template
Taking my time with the legs.
Getting the tenons cut and fit
Cutting the knee blocks for the legs.
Two wide boards carefully jointed and glued up for the top.
Cutting the Dovetails with my trusty Keller jig.
Front Apron carefully cut to remove section for Drawer fronts.
(This keeps the grain pattern the same when the drawer fronts are reattached)
Starting to come together.
Period correct profiles cut and shaped.
Sand Sand Sand and start to pre-stain and apply Danish Oil.
(I’m a big fan of Danish Oil.)
Splurged for some really nice Drawer Pulls from England. ;)
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
