I’m still working on it… ;^)

It’s a reproduction ~ 1765 Connecticut tea table in tiger maple, with scalloped skirts, cabriole legs, and carved bun feet. It was started in a class taught by one of the Society of Antique Period Furniture Makers founders. We met at the museum on a day that it wasn’t open to the public, and measured, templated, and photographed the original back in June. I’ve got about 60 hours in, and I’d say I’m 50% complete.

Due to other projects, I’ve done very little on it over the summer, and am just getting going again. This is my first period piece, so it’s definitely interesting work.

I’ll happily share it when complete!
