I have been fascinated with a British Arts and Crafts table built by Sidney Barnsley, the Hayrake, for as long as I can remember. I have wanted to take this design and make it my own for some time now. After countless sketches I have settled on this standing desk design. Today begins construction of this original design inspired by the great designers of the past…

I always have struggled internally with my designs, the little voice that says it is not good enough. I have listened to my doubt long enough and it is time for my designs to become more than lines on paper. Would love to hear your thoughts.

That is a classic design and I would be happy to have it in my shop. However, I would beef up the bottom stretcher because I know I would rest my foot on it. Please post pix.

It was a little scary getting this all together during the glue’s open time.

Yeah, when you have angles involved gluing is always more interesting. I would probably have done this as 2 separate opportunities to screw it up. :D

Is everything mortise and tenon? I’d be afraid the table would rack from side to side but I guess the stretchers have enough surface bearing against the uprights. That slab of wood on top is gorgeous. Enjoy it.

The whole thing is put together with floating tenons (domino) and is stronger than I anticipated. The top is an ash crotch slab that had been filled with black resin. I will post this as a project as soon as I get finish on it
