Howdy everyone!

Its been a while since I put any of my work on the web so I thought Id show off my latest table.

Named after some wonderful clients the Crino is made from some heavy figured Birdseye and Curly Cherry. Virtually all of the joinery was done with a domino or domino xl. The table is 8’ long and 32” wide (with the leaf folded out), and I chose blumotion under mount slides for the drawers Finished with 4 coats of Maloof oil and 1 coat of Festool Surfix oil.

Very nice work again, as always. I especially like the soft edges around the drawers and on the top. Great table.

Looks beautiful, but struggling to figure out where a table like this would be located in a house?

Not a dining table, and not likely pushed up against a wall with a leaf on one side and drawers on the other.

Great design, beautiful wood, superb craftsmanship, and a healthy crop in the field (winter wheat?) Thanks for posting.

The table is really a hall table that can be pulled out to seat 6 people when the client entertains. Most of the time it’s going to be pushed up against the wall.

And yes it’s hard red winter wheat. It’s the main thing we raise out here (this is actually my front yard) haha, but it could use some rain anytime

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

I would say its a mid century modern / retro piece but really its kinda my own style. a combination of several of my favorite woodworkers work.
