A recently completed project

This Craftsman-inspired hall table was a gift for a very discerning client... my wife!



This table was inspired by the Craftsman aesthetic but is an original design. All work was done by hand with hand saws and hand planes, including a half set of hollows and rounds for the moldings and a Scottish infill for overall smoothing duties.

Woods used are quarter-sawn white oak, air-dried black walnut and white cedar as a secondary wood. Drawers were made with half-blind dovetails. Finish is boiled linseed oil and amber paste wax. Dimensions are 46" wide, 13" deep and 30" tall.

More projects are coming, including pictures of my latest window sash frame.

My best,

Zach
