This table was a commission piece for a client in Rhode Island. The table is to be used as a center piece in her library. and on special dinner occasions. In keeping with my clients designs of her home and furnishings. this table was built entirely by hand. the only electrons that were harmed in the construction of this table were used to power my lights, air conditioner, and radio.
materials consists of sassafras for the top and lower cross support. Ash for the legs, feet and upper supports.
This table was built in the classic farm house harvest table style. with bread board ends that have draw bored tennons. that will allow seasonal movement of the table top. The legs, feet, and top supports are all draw bored tennons as well. the lower cross support is dovetailed into the top of the feet. It was my intention to build this table to outlast the next ice age, or nuclear attack!
This piece is among my personal favorites.
