Woodworker: William KlugeThis mahogany tea table (19-1/2 in. deep by 33 in. wide by 26-3/4 in. tall) is a replica of a John Goddard original made in 1760. In 2005, the original was sold at a Sotheby’s auction for over $8 million. For Kluge, the most challenging and time-consuming part of the construction was handcarving the lip around the top. Compared to that, the ball-and-claw feet were easy, he says. The finish is aniline dyes, oil, shellac, and wax. From Fine Woodworking #220
