Lost Stickley Table

This is the “Lost Stickley Table” from Bob Lang’s book Classic Arts and Crafts Furniture. It is a Christmas present for my girlfriend and the last of my Christmas projects. It was a great project that really stretched my skill level. A lot of firsts here for me, first angled tenons, first angled through wedged tenons, first angled drawer front. The slight angle on the legs, about 4° I think, provided challenges all the way through the project. I am really glad I started this back in September and didn’t feel rushed to get it done, I really needed time to think things through and work carefully. Once I set my angle gauge to the angle of the legs I never moved it until the project was done. The wood is QSWO, finished w/ Lockwood dye and Arm R Seal except for the top I finished w/ Epifanes rubbed effect varnish.

Bondo I like the half blinds on the drawer, they’re something I’ve been reluctant to try. A really nice project, well done!

OF, actually they are not half blinds at all. Another new technique that I tried on this project. They are through dovetails, afterwards I glued a 1/4” thick piece of wood to the drawer front. A bit of a cheat, but with the slant face on the drawer I needed all the help I could get and you would be hard pressed to see it with a magnifying glass. I usually cut my dovetails by hand, but this time I cut them on the band saw. This project was so full of firsts for me. Since I knew that the angled tenons were going to be a learning experience and I gave myself a lot of time to complete this project I decided to go all out and try a bunch of new things that have been in my head for a long time.

Well, this is a keeper. I like the color of the piece, which Lockwood dye did you use?
Great through dovetail technique, it is absolutely seamless.

This one is going to my favorites list.

PD, I used Lockwoods water based “fumed oak dark” dye.

Completely top notch work. Don’t think I have the patience to work with the angles myself,
