Designed and built as a birthday present for a friend, this table meets her requirements for particular dimensions.
Made of various hardwood scraps and pallet boards: rift white oak, red oak, walnut, cherry, maple, and ash.
Mixed style with Asian influence. The legs have two-way reverse tapers and a large chamfer on the outside corners.
The top is a frame with a panel of unglued and spaced boards that are splined to allow for movement as the table will go from our dry climate to a much higher humidity on her houseboat. The drawer, built to house CD’s, has a vertical sliding stop on the back for easy removal and provides 7/8 extension.

Seafin Teak oil & waterborne poly

Dimensions: 22” wide, 24” high, 14” deep

There are a lot of fascinating details in that piece! Can’t say I’ve ever seen anything quite like it.

Wondering how you start? Is it something you see then make? Or did it evolve? A master would think to spline it for a piece on water.

A very solid looking piece with lightness gained from those tapers & a very interesting shelf structure with a subtle colour contrast on the plugs. All in all a fine piece in your usual high style. Wish I could design as well.
