Woodworker: Herman Veenendaal
Since his first trip to Colonial Williamsburg many years ago, when he saw the original of this Massachusetts tea table, Veenendaal had wanted to make a slightly different version in cherry. He used hand tools for most of the table (18-1/2 in. wide by 28-1/4 in. long by 26-3/8 in. tall), but he cut the cove in the top molding using the tablesaw. He says the most difficult part was cutting and fitting the skirt moldings to the aprons. He finished the table with boiled linseed oil, followed by four coats of orange shellac, and nitrocellulose lacquer.
