Elliptical hall table

This hall table in cherry with burr elm veneer top and inlaid ebony lines is a companion piece to the Savonarola inspired chairs which you can see in the Chairs section of the gallery. The legs and drawers (or should that be ‘swingers’?) are of laminated construction. There is also a secret drawer.

I wrote a series of articles on the making of this table which were published in Good Woodworking magazine over three months starting with issue 189.
