This is the ‘Townsend’ table designed by the Greene bros in the early 1900s. I used a nicely figured Sycamore slab I bought on eBay and alder for the frame. The square pegs are African ebony and are a high contrast for the light alder, but overall I think it works.
The original is in mahogany, but the dimensions and lines are so well balanced on their plans that almost any type of wood will look nice.
I made a cad drawing and templates out of the stretchers so I can make these faster and cut the construction costs for my clients.
