This is a pie-crust table I made while attending the North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA. It is solid mahogany and the top is a single 36” wide board. The top was dished out on the lathe, then shaped by hand.
I like the figure of the top and the overall design. It has the usual crust layout with 8 repetitions. I based the legs on an original, which I can’t cite at the moment. They had a lot of tension which I wanted to recreate. I felt that I succeeded in general. The feet continued the tension of the legs. My carvings left much to be desired. They lacked polish to the point of distraction. The column is under-embellished, which contrasts with the legs and top.
