Table Top Restoration

A friend and client came to me with a side table his wife had acquired at a yard sale. Over a few weeks the top warped dramatically. When one edge was held down, the other was 10” off the bench. 40 kerf cuts later it did lay flat, but the edge profile was destroyed. I trimmed off the edges and edge-glued replacements. A new profile and some gloss black lacquer finished the piece.

The top is a quiltwork of metal about twice as thick as aluminum foil. And yes, this was the first time I’ve ever been hugged by a client.
