Hi, my first table. Book matched sassafras floating top table and drawer fronts, on New Guinea Rosewood body. Jarrah hidden splines in mitres and joins. The top “floats” on four small aluminium tubes.
This hall table is designed around the timber – the sassafras is so spectacular I wanted to show it off.
Design is from a table I saw a long time ago which came to mind when I first cut into the wood. Its nice when the timber determines the design.
The construction techniques were adapted from the Boxguy. Its all a little bit rough in places, but pleasing to my eye. I will work harder on getting rid of the snipe.
Dimensions are 800mm high, 1 metre across the top, 250mm wide. Many coats of wipe on poly.
