Almost exact copy from the 1905 Charles P. Limbert Co. furniture catalog. All QSWO. Commissioned. Water with dye finish; two coats poly, two coats wax.

Now I have a commission for two more – from the wife!

Love it! I’ve wanted to make some limbert designs for awhile now, but still haven’t tackled one. Great work and great finish which really highlights those ray flecks.

My wife hates these tables. I love, absolutely love, these tables. I have always wanted to make one (or two) of them. You have done Limbert proud in a big way. Beautiful work. I love it!

Oh, I like the lines on this table. Is there a botton on it – or could a cat climb in there and hide? or be put there by a mischevious child?

Kookaburra, there is no bottom on it, no, but you could put one in…wouldn’t be really hard. A kitten could get in there, but not sure about an adult cat being able to squeeze it’s head through….
