I have constructed a number of Greene and Greene inspired pieces of furniture. But this is my first try at this table. I want to that the men and women on this wonderful site for giving me suggestions for the jiigs and encouragement. I just love this site. Thanks again.

WOW. That is really nice. Need more details, especially about the top. Putting that together must have been a lot of fun.

Oh, boy.

This is your chance to brag on yourself.

You did a beautiful job with that table. Time to ramble on. More pics. Description of the woods, the joinery, the finish, and … anything you learned, along the way.

It’s truly an outstanding build. Time to take your bows :-)

I have been asked a few questions about the project and I will try to answer them. The top is primarily oak plywood wrapped with 2×2 walnut trimmed. I used plywood for the top because I do not have the skills to apply the walnut wrap to 1×6 pieces of oak laminated together. I had no understanding of how to allow for the expansion of an oak laminated top after applying the wrap. I used several templates to design the curves on the table and walnut trim. I followed the technique in this website for making the templates. I tongue and grooved the trim to the plywood using epoxy and screws. I covered the screws with oak square plugs that I made. I finished the table top with provincial oak stain and four coats of clear gloss poly topcoat using a paint pad. The feet, legs, and other base parts were put together with loose tenons and mortise joinery. The most challenging part was making the slides for the table top. The table will slide out 105 inches. I followed the drawings found in Robert Lang’s book. That was challenging. The project was fun.

Have your say...
