This is my most recent project. This is a solid cherry table, with no metal of any sort. Even the handle is hand shaped cherry. There are many different joints that I got to play with, from dovetails, half lap joints, mortise and tenon etc. etc. This was also my first time building and using a steamer to bend the wood for the accents beneath the drawer.
I was inspired to make this hall or side table very light and airy. Most of the stock is 1/2 inch, except the top which is 3/4. It was very fun to start, but I’ll admit it did start dragging on and on. I broke 5 of my major tools (coincidence) during this project so that slowed things down, ordering parts.
In the end it was so worth it. I look forward to finding the right home for this table!
I’m finding it difficult to photograph this piece, since the camera has trouble with the 3rd dimension that is so critical to distinguish where each part is and how it flows.
