This hall table is made of lacewood and maple. I designed it based on some pictures that I have seen in books and magazines. I first built the box which was a bit tricky. I had to learning how to cut 3 way miter joints on the strips of maple and then cut the dados so that I could glue in the lacewood. After sort of figuring out what I had to do I got a copy of Tage Frid’s “Joinery: Tools and Techniques”. That made things so much more clear and easy. I did not use splines however since I figured that gluing in the lacewood would hold it all together. I did a few practice boxes using scraps of pine and poplar first. The finish is linseed oil and polyurethane. Really helped pop the lace. The dimensions are 37.5×35.5×10 inches.
