Woodworker: Craig Thibodeau
Thibodeau designed this dining set for a client who wanted a slightly Asian/Arts and Crafts feel. The top incorporates a special four-way book-match of Carpathian elm burl that he had been saving. The base also has burl panels, as do the chairs. Other woods are cherry, Gabon ebony, and Macassar ebony. The table is 39 in. wide by 74 in. long by 30 in. tall, and the chairs are 17 in. deep by 17 in. wide by 37 in. tall. The finish is conversion varnish and lacquer.
