Hall Table
« on: May 16, 2020, 09:05 AM »
Here’s my latest effort. A Tasmanian Blackwood and European Beech hall table.

After milling up the stock to dimension with the machinery it’s mostly hand made, I used the DF500 to set the drawer rails into the frame but otherwise hand cut mortise and tenons and dovetails.

I’m pleased with how the Blackwood inlays have worked out on the legs, and below the rails, and the depth of the shadow line below the top.

Lots of mistakes made along the way but as usual if you don’t know they are there they are hard to see!!

Anyway every project is a learning experience.

I am really impressed with that. Esp the design. That shot you took of the corner, and three ankles, really shows it off. Kudos to you.

Thanks all. David I put about 75 hours into this - about half that on the drawer- so really appreciate the feedback.

This was as much an exercise in learning and trying out new techniques as a table build.

I hadn’t done a hand cut dovetail drawer, inlays or tapered legs before so took a lot of time on it.

Thought for a long while about the shadow line, plus tried out several handle designs!
