Walnut and Curly Maple Entry Table

By Morrison Custom in Moncks Corner, SC.

Here's my latest gift to my wife! This entry table features an air dried walnut slab and some beautiful figured walnut and maple for the drawer. For this table I chose to incorporate sliding dovetails (holding the drawer supports up into the bottom of the top), half blind dovetails for the drawers, and a really neat curly maple handle with ebony inlay. The finish I chose for this piece is Waterlox original, hand rubbed and buffed with steel wool and paste wax. I played around with some designs for the base, but didn't want anything taking away from the concentration of the piece (the top and the especially magnificent drawer) and so I opted for hairpin legs. I normally don't like how they look, but they work perfectly for an entry table! My wife loves it!
