This was a commision I undertook as the customer coulldn’t find a drop leaf table. It was designed by me in a butterfly shape and is made in Beech with a mahogany trim. The table top was MDF which I applied a Beech veneer to and the banding was wrapped around the edges. This was my first attempt at large scale veneering using my vacuum press and I was happy with the outcome.

Thanks Wilson, I really did enjoy building it and I had a free hand in the design which I don’t often get.
