    Hall Table Finished!!!

    LOML decided a while back we needed a hall table in the foyer. Started this a few days ago, but decided I should post some pics of the progress. Hopefully that will incent me to get it done in a fairly timely manner!

    This is the cabriole legs and front skirt dry fitted. Still have to do some shaping on the legs, but they are close.



    Once I have each side and the back legs fitted, I'll work on finishing up the shaping/smoothing and get started on the top. Still not sure what I'm going to do with the top!

    Wow Ed, really gorgeous! Walnut, right? Cabriole is not my style, but I can sure appreciate the amount of work and artistry that goes into it! Please keep posting pics!

    It is walnut. I'm working on figuring out what I want to do with the side skirts to balance with the front. That won't be as much f a challenge as figuring what to do with the top! I have some spalted ambrosia maple glued up that I was originally planning to use, but it isn't really thrilling me. Toying with the idea of veneering the top and incorporating some type of inlay. You'll have to stay tuned to see what I figure out!

    The table is looking promising already. I'll be sitting back watching this one progress for sure.

    Hi Ed.

    I can't stop my eyes going from your table to your bench and back to your table, both are great!!

    I look forward to see the progress of your table, and when posting its pics take a wide angle lens so we can see a bit more of your bench as well!!
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Ed,

    Looking good. Is that a drawer opening staring at us? What dimensions are you planning for this table? Can't wait to see more.

    Hi Lee, The table is going to be about 30" wide and only about 14" deep with a single drawer. I'd like to make it a little deeper but am constrained by the llocation it will reside at
