Okay here one of my latest projects. It’s a three legged colonial Tea Table. Made from Notty Eastern Pine.
23 1/2” tall, Mortise and tenon joinery. Simple beaded turned legs. Had to make a jig for my mortiser to cut mortises at 30 Degrees for the legs. Once I got the math worked out on paper it didn’t take to long to make.
Just recently I saw an episode of NYW where Norm made a similar table, he was calling it a turkey table, but I’ve seen this style of table before called tea tables….now I’m not sure what to call it…oh well it was a blast to make and looks great in my living room.

So how’d I do?

Very nice, it looks very much like the antique Turkey Table Norm did in season 9 you did a good job with it. I like it! A lot!

Why do you suppose their called cricket tables? They seem to be a mystery…. the reason I was given ( by an antique dealer) for them being called tea tables is that they were used to serve tea in the parlor of the house. The disticntive shape of the top hd a place for the teapot, a creamer, and a plate of tea cakes.
