Update July 12, 16 – added a few pics with better lighting.
I’ve had this table on my to do list ever since I first saw it here on Lumberjocks. I’m a big Greene and Greene fan to start and after searching out the plan, I put this near the top of the ‘things to build’ pile. After a while, I finally got around to building one and I think it turned out ok. There are some flaws and the drawer fit is not as good as it could be, but I like it and more importantly, my wife loves it as well.
She’s been needing a table to do justice to a really nice lamp she bought a while back with an agate shade and the two together are just a beautiful look.
The table is african mahogany with the requisite ebony accents. The stain is the mix recommended by Darrell in the article using 7 parts GF orange and 4 parts GF Med Brown. The top coat is sprayed on lacquer in a satin finish.
Overall I give it a 10 for design (all Darrell) and then a 7.5 for execution of the plan (all me).
I had never seen a lamp like the one here before, but the agates in the shade are beautiful with the lights on. Here’s a pic with a close up.
