A few months back I posted a lily table that I did for an art show with a lily theme at the local pottery shop. From that show I got my first commission and this is the results from that work. She liked the calla lilies from the first table but wanted a table made from oak or ash to match the furniture they already have. I made an initial sketch and met with her and after some changes this is the design I came up with. The eight leg design I must admit was not my idea but came from showing her a picture of a table made by California woodworker John Lavine. The top and bottom shelf are made with curly ash veneer banded with cherry, all the rest is oak.The three butterflies represent the three sisters in the family and the caterpillar is the brother ,a little family humor. I was a little unsure about the drawers because of the deep reach under the top but she wanted them and they really are not as bad as I thought. It was a great learning experience both in the table construction and working with someone else in designing a project but if all my future clients are as easy going I will be really happy! Thanks for looking.
