Craftsman Hall Table

Here is my craftsman style hall table. It is 14”x28” to fit in an inside 45 degree corner in our front hallway. Our stair railing has square, chamfered ballusters so the style of the table fits in well. The table is quarter sawn red oak with walnut pegs. Construction features include through mortise and tenons, pegged rabbet drawer joints, and inlayed slate. The mission bail pulls are from Chown hardware in Portland, OR.
Finish is Rodda #19 stain, and Miller 60 sheen lacquer (both sprayed).
Happy Woodworking

Quarter sawn oak looks great with that stain. Very nicely done.

B13 – Here are some pictures of the slate inlay process. First I make an MDF template that will hold my workpiece firmly in position. I use strips of MDF around my slate tiles to form the opening. Then I rout out the recess with a bearing guided bit. While the template is still in place, I square up the corners with a chisel. After the wood is lacquered, the slate is then glued in with construction adhesive and grouted for a finished look.

that is very nice. Did you size it to fit right in that 45 degree corner or did it just happen to fit perfectly?

Grant –
I sized the table specifically for that spot. One of the benefits of custom furniture I guess. Google Sketchup was very helpful for the design work.
Thanks

Can I ask how you made the legs? It appears that you have a nice Quarter Sawn pattern on all 4 sides.

Alongiron –
The legs are made by laminating thin strips of oak on two sides. I used 1/8” strips and glued it up with clamping cauls and plenty of clamps. The neat thing about this method is that once the edges are sanded, the joint line dissapears.
Another method would be a locking miter bit on a router table. I haven’t tried that method yet because I hear complaints tht the setup is tedious.
Best of luck!
