I am making a series of 6 Federal style end tables, based on Steve Latta’s basic design. This is my second table. The first is in curly cherry, and I am currently working on my third which is a walnut Pembroke style with folding leaves, turned & reeded legs.
My goal has been to learn new techniques with each table (spade feet, veneering, inlay, cross banding, rule-joints, etc.) and come up with unique inlay and veneer designs with each table, all using the same basic table dimensions. I plan to use a different wood for each table: figured maple, walnut, cherry, mahogany, etc., plus a variety of crotch and burl veneers. I make most, but not all, of my inlay. I also like to use some of the luthier designs.
Wood: Walnut, curly maple (drawer sides); Inlay: Paduak cross banding, Holly stringing, Ebony, Pear, various veneers
Finish: Shellac & wax, Waterlox for top
Dimensions: 27” high, 18” wide, 17” deep
Hardware: Horton drawer pulls.
