Inspired by the Gamble House Hall Table. I modified the size to fit the intended space.

Really nice Arts and Crafts inspired. I love this style and this is one of the best examples I have seen recently.

The finish was brown mahogany dye then multiple coats of Arm-R-Seal by General Finishes.

The drawer slides are wider strips of ebony attached to the top of the drawer sides. The drawers hang from ebony tracks attached to the underside of the top.

Stunning! – I’m sure the Hall’s would be pleased! Just a wonderful piece of craftsmanship. Nice that you included all the original details.

Absolutely wonderful. To me, Greene and Greene doesn’t beg for attention. It just stands there until someone is lucky enough to take a moment to realize what they are looking at. I took a class with Darrell Peart out her in Anaheim, California and loved every minute of it.

Very nice. Did you use the Gamble hall table plans and customize or is this all your design?
