Hall Table

We needed a table for our front hall to fit against a curved staircase. So I designed this art deco table with an oval contour to fit the stairs. The top is chamoire mahogany, the oval skirt is ebonized ash and the legs are maple.

The table is finished in oil and wax.

The unique thing about the grain is that it shifts and changes pattern as the angle of light changes – such as walking past it or up the stairs above.

This is an exceptionally nice table. The curve and taper in the legs really adds to the appeal of this design. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comment. The legs were quite a challenge for me to make and required a couple of trys to get the methodolgy right and to build (and rebuild) the jig to make them on. The legs curve in two directions and taper on all four sides.

Thanks Lee. This table was a surprising amount of work given its size and few components so I really appreciate the kind comment
