Spinner Table

This table is based on Garrett Hack’s design and build. His version was made of fir top and aprons, cherry legs with ebony socks, and rosewood cockbead. My version is rift-sawn maple top and aprons, cherry legs with macasssar ebony socks, rosewood cockbead, and white ash drawer side.

By far the most interesting design element is the drawer that spins out, rather than typical slide drawers. All four legs splay out at an angle and have a continuous taper (no flat portion for joinery on the apron side). The piece was a gift to my sister-in-law, which I believe she enjoyed it. Thoughts and comments welcome!

Now that is real nice piece
The drawer is just the cherry on top of a host
of great features. After the drawer, for me the finish
is #2 on this piece
It has also solved a dilemma that I had. This morning
I had a front piece for a Shrine that has been on the
back-burner for more years than I care to think, in my
hand. The spinner drawer is perfect. I’ll send you a pic
when complete.
Thank You
Jamie

Very pretty little table there.
How did you bend the drawer side? Is it resawn and laminated pieces of Ash, or solid piece steam bent?
Is the drawer on some kind of hardware/slides, or just flapping around in there?

NIce job.

Awesome job!
I have his small wall cabinet dvd and plan on building that pretty soon. It’s a really nice design.

I watched the video on FFW. I like the socks. Had never seen that, at least in the contrasting colors Hack did. Your dovetails look great. You done good!

@Ben: The drawer side is laminated out of four pieces of ash, approximately 3/32 thick each. The “hardware” is a 3” brass wood screw running through the apron and drawer front. It swings in and out like its on a ball bearing, like butter!

@nitewalker, Hack’s small cab is a brilliant design. I am very fond of most anything Garrett Hack puts his hand planes to.

@davidroberts, Those dovetails were more challenging than they initially appeared. Especially since I don’t hand-cut mine. I use a router table (tails) and tablesaw (pins) approach which leads to problems when working with a curved piece as here. All in all, they came out very well.

All: Thank you very much for the support! This is my first “Top Three,” and I am very proud!

Great looking table. Like the drawer arrangement, and the leg treatment at the bottom. Well done.
