My client ordered one of my Tsuba Dining Tables and wanted a coffee table with similar detailing on the base. The base is also very similar to the base used on my Rafter Table Tables (less the rafter tails). Tomorrow (January 6th 2012) it ships to Calgary AB along with a lot of other stuff.

beautiful, glad you had a nice order from your client, the green and green will always celebrate joinery and how many pieces of wood come together as one to be one piece, and you always do it justice..they would be proud of your celebration of there design…always wonderful to see your work…..

Gorgeous as always.

My wife wants to know why I didn’t make our coffee table like this. I’m gonna give it a try.

I like it. You have a pretty table, nice work & well done. Darrell, do you call it your Tsuba design because of the end treatment of the top? I’d like to see some pictures of your rafter tables too.

Another winner, as expected.

Did you use something other than ebony for the plugs on this one? Some of them look a little brown to me in the photos.

Edit: Oh, wait. I’m seeing the ends of some through tenons, it looks like. Never mind. :)

Simple at first look, refined from close range, always elegant. Yep, a true G&G piece ! Is it inspired by a specific G&G table or your own design ? I am trying to gather up more knowledge on them so I’ll be glad to hear more. Thanks for making their work come back alive.
