Federal hall table

By Derek McDonald in Rochester, NH.

Winning Category

Woods: Mahogany (Swietenia Macrophylla), White Oak Burl (Quercus Alba), Gaboon Ebony (Diospyros Crassiflora), Eastern White Pine (Pinus Strobus).

Inspired by the work of 18th-century furniture maker Thomas Seymour, this table aims to put a contemporary twist on a classic design. While the reeded and carved legs stay true to the original, the visually striking oak veneer leaves the piece far removed from the category of “old brown furniture”.
