Tsuba Dining Table

A tsuba is a Japanese sword guard – Charles Greene had a collection of tsubas and incorporated their shape in many of his designs. This table is my design using a modified tsuba shape for the top. The slide system is a very basic “beveled edge” system I found in “The Encyclopedia of Furniture Making” by Earnest Joyce.
Woods used are African Mahogany with Gabon Ebony details.

I’m amazed at how much Japanese influence is in the G2 designs.

Very beautiful, and inspirational work-especially for us amateurs!
Now that I know where you’re located, I’ll make a point of visiting your shop the next time I’m in town visting my daughter in Kirkland.
Looking forward to the opportunity to attend one of your classes, time permitting.
