This has been an ongoing project (more “off” than “on”) since January. This weekend I finally said “enough” and focused my attention to finally finish it up. Photo 4 just shows most of the pieces. Photos 2 & 3 are during a dry fit, but I wanted to show how the rails are dovetailed into the front and back aprons and how the drawer slides along the rabbets in the rails. I wanted to keep the amount of wood and hardware to a minimum, and this seemed a sensible way. The tabletop is bracketed to the aprons to allow for minor seasonal movement. The wood used for the main pieces is Madrone. The drawer pull is also Madrone, turned down to suit. The brackets on the drawer pull, the splines and the pegs are ebony, rescued from a guitar building shop that was closing down. The grain of the Madrone presented some challenges and the pieces wanted to “move” their own way, some twists and such to be worked out, but I consider the end result to be a worthwhile payoff.

Phenomenal! That’s almost exactly the table I’m working on. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. CaptainSkully, I’m looking forward to seeing your posting of your G&G table. I may well wish you had finished yours first so I could learn from it.
