Serpentine Front Federal Table

This table is a classic Federal style serpentine front table. The piece is made of Curly English Sycamore (a relative of the American maple). The aprons are made from a bent lamination of poplar. The wood is inlayed with stringing and banding of ebony and holly and cuffed with ebony. The piece was stained with a water based aniline dye coated with 15 coats of rubbing varnish and rubbed out with wax.

The english sycamore has a beautiful fiddleback pattern which makes the piece stand out in any room. The design is both classic and modern and could be toned to to match other pieces. I really like the piece before it was dyed and may make it again with just a clear coat

Dimensions: 30 high x48 long x 15 deep
