Craftsman Style Table Built With Pipe Organ Lid

This table was built for for a local coffeeshop. The table top was previously the lid to a pipe organ, and I designed the legs, rails, and stretcher around it according to traditional Craftsman style and dimensions. With the exception of the lid, the table is made of quarter sawn white oak. The legs have been made such that quarter-sawn grain can be seen on all four sides, naturally impossible (as wood does not grow this way), it was a preferred method of Stickley furniture. The joints are through mortise and tenons, finished with a dark stain to highlight the beauty of quarter-sawn flake. The beam connecting the rails is joined with double wedge tenons.
