Woodworker: William WellsFor Wells, who interned with Michael Fortune, this table (12 in. deep by 54 in. wide by 32 in. tall) was a lesson in grain direction and curves. Wells chose Macassar ebony veneer because its distinctive grain would stand out as it wrapped from the top down the front and back. The ebonized cherry stretcher was steam-bent and joined to the legs with mortise-and-tenon joints and to the top with dowels. The finish is lacquer.
