Tables of this design are $2,800. The tops are a single tiger maple board with amazing figure. The legs are a pleasing design and individually hand turned. We turn our work by hand because the end result is crisper, cleaner, and tighter.
There is something about having a single skilled artisan, rather than a hydraulically controlled machine shaping the legs on your handmade table.
The lower shelf takes a nice table and makes it a lot more functional. Another area for books and a tissue box leaving enough room for the lamp on the top.
The drawerfront is highly figured birdseye maple. We veneer the highly figured wood onto less figured wood so the drawerfront doesn’t warp or twist. Yes, the drawer is dovetailed.
Hand dovetailed because that’s just the way better is. With a tiger maple we use a hand turned wood knob. Because wood looks better than brass on tiger maple. The knob is turned with a tenon that goes through the drawerfront and is wedged from the back. Knobs held on with screws come loose. Knobs through tenoned and wedged do not.
A clear durable oil finish on top. We stain the tiger maple with a liquid butterscotch colored stain to accent the figure in the wood.
