I finally got around to getting some decent pictures of the Vanity Table I built for my wife.
The field of the top is a very unique douglas fir that I aquired some time ago. The carcase is figured mahogany.
The design is original, I combined Federal Style elements that I liked into a new whole.
The legs and mirror uprights were turned on the lathe then I hand cut the reeds and flutes. Wasn’t nearly as much work as I was fearing!
I’ve added a third picture to show the “birds eye” fir. I was able to resaw this board into three 1/8” veneers. When I saw it, I knew that I wanted to build this type of table with it. Sometimes the wood tells you what it wants to become!
