My hall table. King of the forest meets the bush princess.
I am in my first year diploma coarse, Furniture design & Manufacture. This is my third project.
I won first prize at the national Kawerau Woodskills Festival 2011 in the open furniture section, and am real pleased about that.
As a first year student I had to use the 14 leg hall table design to meet the coarse critearia, but was able to choose the timber, design the top and the draw layout. The draw sides and backs are made from Kahikatea and the draw fronts and bottoms are done in Oak. Hand done dovetails on the front and back. All 100% recycled timber.
My coarse lecturer is on Lumberjocks too. He is andyboy, if you look at his pics you can see the original design that I had to work from, and compare.
