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.
