This is one of my first professional commissions (and my first post on Lumberjocks!). It is an extending double pedastal dining table which is 7’ x 48” closed and 10’ fully extended. The top is figured ribbon mahogany with a border of crotch mahogany inlaid into peruvian walnut (leaving a 1/4” reveal of the walnut on either side of the crotch mahogany). The pedastals are peruvian walnut. The 8 “legs” of the pedastals were made with tapered bent lamination. The finish is pre-catalyzed lacquer. (Pictured here without the 3’ leaf. For some reason I forgot to get a picture of the table with the leaf in….).
I had many “firsts” on this project and it was an adventure! Any and all constructive criticism welcome!
