Here’s a table I just finished for my entrance hall. I had to design something that would fit in an odd triangular-shaped alcove, and would also not be dominated by the strong colours of the marble floor.
The top is veneered with a redwood burl, the sides are veneered with kingwood. The cockbead, legs and edge moulding are all made from solid walnut. The finish is blond shellac with the top French polished and lightly waxed.
This was a very challenging piece with lots of curves and funny angles, but I am pleased with the result.

Thanks all. It was really enjoyable to make and now I’m happy to see it when I come home!22 May 2013 at 8:01 pm #12366Scott VParticipant
I like how the the gorgeous Kingwood veneer on the front is framed by the lighter grain color on the inside front legs, the lower horizontal bead, and the front table edge. The color contrast really draws visual interest.
The table complements the floor while not getting lost.
