Prince of Wales Feather Paterae Table
Champion admired the look of Steve Latta’s demilune table (“Federal Card Table,” FWW #180) and wanted to build something with similar decorative features, a curved front, and dimensions that fit his needs. He decided to incorporate Prince of Wales feather paterae into the ovals at the top of the legs. “I spent a lot of time testing design ideas, construction, and finishing techniques to end up with the final result.”
