Walnut Hall Table
The neat thing about this walnut hall table is that the curved piece in the front started out as a very straight grained stick. The grain appears curly now because of the way I machined it. Nothing else special, just an elegant little hall table.
Jacobean Refectory Table
It is unusual to have a request for a dining table of Jacobean refectory style. While it probably doesn't qualify as a "style", there are similarities amongst Jacobean tables. It wasn't part of the customer's request, but I did build it anticipating that it would have to be moved through doors and up stairs. So I designed and built it to disassemble into five manageable pieces without tools. The joints are completely invisible, you have to "know" the table to be able to disassemble it. Unlike most knock down furniture, this will support 600 pounds in the middle without any measurable sag. I know because we tested it just for fun. It has an oiled finish and is made of red oak. The bread board ends are secured using a French dovetail (no hardware) and there are no other battens underneath.
Coffee Bean Display and Coffee Table
This is the coffee table display unit that was built from a prototype. It has a tempered glass top that protects the contents of a hidden drawer. The drawer can be unlocked and opened to service the display. In this case, the display is an operational N scale train layout and the topography of the layout is fairly deep. The layout can be operated from a remote console without opening the table. The finish is two rubbed out coats of lacquer over two seal coats on coffee bean lumber.
Here is a nice set of custom bedside tables made of quartersawn red oak. The drawers are dovetailed and slide easily without hardware. The style is close to the old mission style that seems to be timeless. The breadboard ends of the tops are held on with French dovetails. There are inlaid walnut details in the front and back edges of the tops, The walnut knobs are custom made for these tables. I need a better picture of them to show off the detail on the side panels.

A Forever Picnic Table and Benches
This custom made hedge wood picnic table is "back home". The wood was harvested from a fence row of this farm. One of the features is battens that keep the removable top flat. Without tools, the top can be slid to one side and the tapered sliding dovetails will release the top. Then the table becomes much more manageable for moving. This stuff is HEAVY! The benches are pegged into the legs with 2" tenons.
