    Cherry Hall Table

    This is a gorgeous Cherry table that I saw, and wanted to pass along. Anybody up to the challenge to duplicate something like this?

    Charles, thanks for posting this. I saved the photos for reference as a future project. I've used similar techniques on some of my past projects and I like the proportions of this table.

    If that implies you have a customer for me, I would love to duplicate it or a variant of it. The techniques are very similar to what I did in the apron and base of this large dining room table.

    No Charlie, I don't have a customer for you, Sorry. The process looks interesting to me, and your table is something to behold also. Way beyond my ability for sure.

    I've actually got a VERY SIMILAR one going work-in-progress right now. Showed it to Larry yesterday. Haven't taken any pictures, though.

    I'm making the circular parts quite differently, though - I'm doing full circle laminations.

    I like that a lot

    I'd be defiantly challanged with the circles.

    Nice table Charlie. Impressive workmanship!

    As far as the hall table, that is a nice design. If I were building it, I'd make the circles out of a light color birds eye

    with the tops and bottoms very very dark brown, and maybe a chrome drawer pull on the front just for looks.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible
