Federal Expanding Dining Table

7' Wide (2 leaves) 5' 10" (1 leaf) 4' 8" (no leaves, photo) x 29 3/4" Tall x 17 1/2" Deep, 190 Hours

Made of South American Mahogany (each top piece is solid and 28" wide) and inlaid with quarter-sawn Satinwood, Holly, Black Costello and brass. There are two additional leaves not shown in the photograph, each 14" wide. The table comfortably seats eight with both leaves in place. It is finished with linseed oil, shellac, varnish and wax.

This table was my first major commission, which I completed during the Summer break while at the North Bennet Street School. The profits from this piece allowed me to pursue my dream of hiking the Appalachian Trail, which I did upon graduating in 2008. Since then I have gone on to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, 2010, the Continental Divide Trail, 2012, the Long Trail, 2013, and the Annapurna Circuit, 2014. I owe almost 10,000 miles of walking to this table.
