I made this Queen Anne Tea Table for my grandma a while back. It is made from flamed maple.

The legs were shaped on a bandsaw, and then cleaned up with a spokeshave and sandpaper. For the aprons, I trimmed an angle on the tablesaw and then finished the curve with a spokeshave.

I french polished it for a finish. A stain or dye would have popped the figure a little more, but it also would have faded unpleasantly over time with UV exposure. The shellac pulled out enough flame to make it interesting.

Wow. The sharp and curvy lines on the legs and aprons are top notch.

Very nice piece. Queen Anne pieces are, IMO, amongst the most elegant ever conceived.
