All, I have not posted any projects on LJ in a really long time…..so sorry about that.
But, I recently got pictures of a table I finished in 2010. It is modeled after a table I saw in a Winterthur publication. The original was from Philadelphia, made in the Chippendale style, so I tried to carry through the character of the original, even though this was not an exact reproduction.
This was my second piece with carved ball and claw feet, and I think these were MUCH better than the first set. The carved moldings were fun to do. By far the most difficult portion was the carving on the knees. At this I just think I need to keep practicing.
Wood: Walnut and Red Oak (back rail and interior bracing)
Finish: Aniline Dye and shellace
Dimensions: 48” L x 34” H x 22” D
Thanks everyone for checking it out. I look forward to your comments. Cal
