Based on Finewoodworking Federal Card Table, with a few variations. The top opens to a full round table by swinging the back legs out and opening the top. The table top is Black Walnut, the apron is a laminated English Walnut with strips of Holly and a binding of Holly and Walnut. The loop on top of the bell flowers is inlay epoxy with crushed green stone. The lines in the flowers are burned into the Holly. The legs are Mahogany and the inlay is Holly. The “socks” are Ebony with a matching binding as in the apron.
This was one of my most enjoyable projects due to the amount of new techniques for me. First time doing inlay, first time doing my own bindings, firs time doing pyrography. This project took about 200 hours of beautiful work including a few jigs and some leg mock ups.
