Townsend-Style Pembroke Table
Woodworker: Chuck PhillipsAs a first-year student at The Furniture Institute of Massachusetts, Phillips was inspired by a visit to the John Townsend exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He crafted this table from mahogany with holly inlay using dimensions, descriptions, and photos from the exhibit’s companion book, John Townsend Newport Cabinetmaker. Phillips used pine and soft maple as secondary materials. The finish is French polish.
