This table, a close reproduction of an original built around 1800, is a wonderful example of Louisiana Creole style. The legs are cabriole and the bottom edge of the aprons is scalloped, but the lack of carvings, inlays, or other complex details gives the table a rustic feel. Like its style, the table’s construction is a mix of the exotic and the familiar. The legs are joined to the aprons with pegged mortise-and-tenons. The cabriole legs and scalloped edges, even though they look exotic, aren’t difficult to make.



CAD-drawn plans and a cutlist for this project are available in the Fine Woodworking store.
