Tables Hand Crafted in the 18th Century Manner
A Curly Maple table with 12 Bird Cage Windsors that I built (only 8 chairs are shown). The table is 7’10” long in it’s closed position seating 8 comfortably. It is 11′ 6″ long in its open position seating 12.
This is a very common form of small occasional table, popular for many centuries. I make several versions of this table from many different species of wood. It can be made with a simple flat turned top to one like this, where the whole top has been turned down to leave a decorative turned molding at the outside edge. The table pictured has a compass inlay made from curly maple and ebony. It also has a tilting mechanism that allows you to retire the table against the wall and show off the inlay.
26-1/4″ high x 18″ round top
Range: $475.00-$875.00 (as shown)
What better way to compliment your new windsor chairs than with a period reproduction tavern table. The legs on this table are turned in a style that was used on country and informal Queen Anne furniture. The top is made from cherry with pinned bread board ends. It has a six coat finish that looks antique but uses modern finishing techniques that give it great durability and ease of use. This piece is easily adaptable to suit your needs.
30-1/2″ high x 34″ wide x 48″ deep
Splayed Leg Table
This table works well with two chairs and is the perfect place for a game of draughts or just to relax and drink a pint with your best friend.
The top of this table is figured maple with pinned bread board ends. Not only do the splayed legs look great but they add a great deal of stability to such a small table. The result is stunning when the bottom of the table and a pair of chairs are painted a contrasting color to the maple top. This table can easily be customized to suit your needs.
30-1/2″ high x 22″ wide x 35″ deep
Desk on Frame
This desk was a popular form in commercial establishments in the 18th century. Shop owners at that time would not have sat down to do the many clerical tasks necessary to run a business, they would have stood up at a desk like this. This desk has four compartments and four drawers with a deep well in front of them for plenty of storage. There is also a large drawer in the frame section for more storage.
