Solid maple table and 6 chairs. The clients wanted a South Western design a style that has been overdone recently, so I designed something that they would like and that I wanted to build. I call this Spanish Colonial / Mayan with a Greene & Greene influence. The pedestal is made of 8 pieces that were coopered together and the legs lap in the center. Glue blocks were used to secure the legs to the base and the legs are glued and secured together with dowels, which do not show. The top is 1 ½" thick were joined and glued together and because of the large size had to be planed and scraped by hand. The chairs are constructed using mortice and tenon construction and the seats are attached to the top using counter bored holes on the inside of the seat apron. The lazy Susan is made from the cut off sections of the table top. The table and chairs were finished with linseed oil and turpentine followed by 3 thin coats of satin marine spar varnish.
An alternative to a flat panel refrigerator cover. I have made several of these, most of which were open to allow for ventilation, this unit is solid as the heat escapes from around the sides. This went into an oak kitchen that we redid by hand planing and sandblasting then staining and varnishing. The grain on the 'woven' part all matched until it was cut.
