Victorian entryway tables

This pair of tables was designed to frame the doorway to my home and to blend with the existing antiques in the dining and living rooms adjacent to the entryway. This was the final project for a Studio Furniture Design class at Red Rocks Community College in Lakewood, CO.

The tables legs and rails are made from from a single walnut board. The table tops are curly walnut and have continuous grain from table to table. The front panels are made from curly cherry with a walnut inlay. The other panels are made from cherry.

My thanks to my instructor, Pat Morrow (http://www.trailmixstudio.com) for her wise guidance, encouragement and support.

Those are beautiful. I would give an A+ on those. The design, wood choices, craftsmanship, and finish are all flawless.

I love the flow of the legs, very organic and natural. I am half expecting the picture to “walk” off the screen like the Disney flick, Beauty and the Beast. :-) Beautiful!!

Truly fantastic design and execution. Please tell me there is something to prevent the door from swinging into the right side table, besides summary execution of said perpetrator.

Really nice work, thanks for sharing doc.

Thanks to all for your comments. It was a fun project to work on, especially tying the design to the place where the tables will live.

I appreciate ITnerd’s caution about the door – I think we’ve got plenty of clearance but will post notices that perpetrator’s will be prosecuted!!

Also, chopnhack’s note about the pieces looking somewhat animated echoes what I heard from my instructor.
