I’ve been fairly active in the online woodworking community for a while but have never really produced anything I would classify as furniture. I began working on this table about 7 months ago but got sidetracked with a priority shift of renovating 6 rooms in our house. And the standard trying to produce and put up as much food as possible each summer.
A few weeks ago I was finally able to dive back into the project and managed to finish it yesterday.
It’s clearly influenced by much of Darrel Pearts Greene & Greene styled work as well as work by Marc Spagnuolo, Timothy Rousseau and other random Asian tables. I do sincerely apologies to all of the above for my poor bastardized attempt to be influence by them.
It’s crafted out of solid cherry and ebony and finished with shellac and satin Arm-R-Seal. It’s a bit orange right now, but should mellow and darken as the cherry ages over the next few years.
This was a challenging project for me as it was my first real attempt to incorporate curves into any of my woodworking. Almost every edge in this entire piece has some form of curve to it.
As much as I love Greene and Greene styled work I think my next couple projects need to focus on a style that is slightly more efficient to build :)
