Will has started construction of a pair of our 'classic' half round tables= in stained cherry and curly maple. We’ve made maybe 20 versions of the basic design over the years, 3 legs, 4 legs, paint and natural, paint and stain, all stain, etc., etc., but for some reason, none in the last couple of years … styles change I guess. These clients bought one of our cherry and burl dining tables about 10 years ago and it was nice to have a visit with them at their table while we were working on the final designs for the hapf rounds. Half round tables involve lots of nice jigs and processes and I will try to keep up with the whole deal on my blog as we go along … more and bigger photos as well as process descriptions on my dorset custom furniture blog.

This is a beautiful table and it exhibits wonderful craftsmanship. Thanks for showing this.
