This oval drop leaf table is rich in detail from the federal period, featuring book bind inlay, stringing, handmade banding, sand-shaded bellflowers. With all parts re-sawn from a single plank of mahogany, there is uniformity of color and grain throughout. A Dovetailed drawer, richly veneered with crotch birch and framed by rosewood banding, adorn each end of the table. Holly stringing leads to a fine rosewood cuff at the base of each simply tapered leg.

Duncan Phyfe Styled Tilt-Top Table
Inspired by a pair of tables in the Winterthur Collection, this design can be used an occasional table or tilted up for storage in a corner. It features hand fit rolling brass casters and waterleaf carving on the legs. The twelve sided top is edge profiled with a triple bead and fillet. The entire piece is finished with hand padded shellac and wax.
Material (as shown): South American Mahogany
Finish: Super Blond Shellac, Aniline Dye
Size: 24in x 24in x 28in (Tilted Down)
This Asian inspired contemporary sofatable table works equally well in an entry way as it does behind a couch. The sweeping curves on the apron mimic the profile of the rosewood top while simultaneously complimenting the gentle curves of the tapered legs. The beveled edge of the top leads to the exposed wedge tenon joinery and ultimately to the legs. To achieve a lighter feel, the rosewood top is elevated above the maple base.
Material (as shown): Bolivian Rosewood (Morado), Hard Maple
Finish: Danish Oil, Wax
Size: 48in x 14in x 32in
The Flint Desk
A commissioned piece, this design looks to blend traditional craftsmanship with mid century modern style. All solid wood construction, hand cut dovetails, and a single piece top are the focal point of the desk, which is supported by a frame of delicately tapered round legs. Drawing inspiration from both the large desks designed in the 1960's by Jen Quistgaard, and from earlier works of Nakashima stressing his shaker roots, this piece has a set of pencil drawers and a pull out keyboard tray all with textured drawer pulls. The overall size is meant to compliment the unique space it occupies.
Materials: Walnut, Poplar
Finish: Waterlox, Wax
Size (as shown): 56" x 20" x 30"
This small occasional table with its quirky top would once have been a common piece of furniture in the taverns of the colonial era.

Materials: Sipo Mahogany, Poplar
Finish: dye, Shellac, Poly/Lacquer, Milk Paint
