Hello LJ members & friends…
The first 4 pics from L to R are Hepplewhite cherry table. I’ve made 4 now. For a fledgling woodworker, this table is a very doable and simple design with all the sophistication of a much larger piece; elements include: hand cut dovetails, mortice & tennon joinery, tapering legs on a jointer. To get such plans on CD…look up Glen Hewey. I highly recommend this CD video, and more are available.
The last piece on the far right is a high boy made by my mentor, Jeremy. His work is all classically built, with all hand cut dovetails, hand planing on all flat surfaces and turned finials. The finishing is a complicated analine water dye with laquer spray. More to it but that’s all I know off the top of my head.
Bookcase in the next project.
