I was going through some old files on my computer and came upon some shop photos of this table which I made about 4 years ago. I thought I had posted this project here, but to my suprise I have not.
The slides are shop made – from an old article in FWW.

It is modeled after G&G’s Thorsen House Dining. I have made several of these over the years – the first one being in about 1994 which appeared in Home Furniture Magazine .
It is not meant to be an exact replica. I have changed a several things to suite my fancy. If you look at the original Greene and Greene piece you will see the face of the legs are flat – mine are faceted similare to what I have seen in Gothic furniture.

thanks everyone !
Devann – there are lots of images that I can’t account for – but I think most of them were on a hard drive that died.

What Mahogany did you use. It looks like you did not use any stain.
