I designed this table for a client. I was free to choose the materials, but I was given specific measurements. The base is made of Maple. The legs are tapered and the frame members are all tapered to match the legs. Everything is mortise and tenon. All angled joints made for an iteresting glue up. The tenons are pinned with walnut dowels at the legs. The center “medallion” of Zebrawood interrupts the skirt in the middle and references the top. This piece is also mortise and tenon. The legs are capped with Walnut feet, which were fastened with a central dowel before the legs were tapered. The top is made from Zebrawood and Peruvian Walnut and is chamfered all around. I finished it with General Finishes semi-gloss. I generally use satin on the final coats, but this looked too nice to knock down to satin. The piece is 51 inches long, 22 inches wide, and 16 inches tall. It took 8 weeks from beginning the design until delivery. I have a full time job, so I could only work on it a couple hours at a time.
