Small table in Maple, with Walnut drawer front
Hall Table in Maple, with a Quilted Maple and Rippled Maple top and Swiss Pear inlaid stringing
This table has been made using traditional techniques. The side and back aprons have an inlaid string of American Black Walnut. The table top is solid Bird's Eye Maple, with an ogee moulded edge to create an impression of lightness. The drawer front is in American Black Walnut, with a hand-turned drawer pull made from Maple.
The drawer is of traditional dovetailed construction.
This hall table was designed to be tall and elegant, whilst staying slender enough to fit comfortably into the hallway of a modern home. Its three drawers are capacious but unobtrusive. Its top, although delicate in appearance, is actually very hard-wearing.
The table is shown here, exhibited at the Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design (CCD), at Cheltenham in 2019

The table is of traditional construction. The drawer fronts are in Maple, their sides are in English Oak, and their bases in Cedar of Lebanon which is delicately scented. Cedar is traditionally used in drawer construction because of its moth-repellent qualities.
Semi-Elliptical Table in Oak
This table is made of English Oak. The legs have a modest taper and the curved apron was made of 12 plies of Oak laminated under pressure to create the table's semi-elliptical shape. The curved apron is edged with Swiss Pear stringing.
The top is made of two pieces of solid English Oak. edge-jointed to make the most of their beautiful grain.
The vertical curved section on the back edge of the table top complements the horizontal curve of the table top but also ensures that the table can be positioned up against a wall, whilst keeping the feet clear of the skirting board.
