It’s been a while since I last visited or posted anything but I have been very busy setting up my very own woodworking business.
Here is a table I made for a client. They wanted it for a corner that sits empty in their hall way. They wished for a lamp to brighten up the space.
I originally thought to incorporate a pivoting drawer but because of the size of the piece and its location I found this to be an erroneous detail that would just add to the cost not to mention making it look chunkier! The client dictated the size so I had noalowance there.
The table had to be internationally shipped, this necessitated the joinery to allow easy assembly by the client.
I joined the stretchers to the legs with sliding dovetails and the legs are notched to receive the shelf the top will be held down with fasteners. There is no issue with wood movement being that the top, shelf and two of the stretchers are plywood. The curved stretcher is pine, so are the legs. The client wished for a walnut look! Not knowing what else this meant I veneered the table in Walnut (not cheep!) The client also wished for a shinny finish so I used gloss poly because I feared lacquer could crack and peel from the shipping and moisture differences!
So tell me what you think!
