Honduras Mahogany with Koa, Holly, and Black Dyed Veneers Dressing Table
Sandy Springs, Ga.
Milam made this dressing table, modeled after one at Winterthur, as a wedding gift. The shape of the legs complicated both the joinery and the inlay. “On most tables with curved fronts, the radius dies into the inside edges of the front legs, leaving the legs square in cross section. On this table, the radius extends to the outside edges of the front legs, rendering the legs trapezoidal in shape.”
