If you are interested in more info on this table please visit by webpage Custom Hall Table

This table is built from white oak, the breadboard ends are attached using traditional green and green style ebony plugs. The handle is steam bent walnut. The legs are not only splayed out at an angle but are also tapered to add a little more visual interest.

Looks like you did a fantastic job keeping all the grain patterns consistent!

What finish did you use?

That’s a great looking hall table! I like the hybrid look of it, combining G&G elements with a Shaker look!

I love the handle.
I must try to build a steambox and reproduce it.

I’ve been looking for a handle solution for some of my shop cabinets—one that didn’t stick out, and one that won’t snag on things—and I think I just found it in your project.

What an elegant handle! I’ve never steam-bent anything, but what you’ve done there with the gentle curve, the receiving hole in the drawer front, is gorgeous.

Next job for me: Building a steam box!! Can’t wait!! Thanks for the inspiration!
