Woodworker: Garrett Hack
Hack made this small table (he calls it a demi demilune) for the annual auction of the New Hampshire Furniture Masters Association. The table features cherry legs with holly string inlay and birch-plume panels outlined with holly and ebony in a dot/dash inlay pattern. The oval front-panel is bird’s-eye maple. On top, a small box mimics the elliptical shape of the tabletop. Hack signed the box lid in Morse code using a fine dot/dash inlay on a field of crotch cherry and bird’s-eye maple. The finish is oil and varnish, followed by shellac.
