Small Queen Ann table

Small Queen Ann table. Black cherry 28’’x 20’’. Some machine work but all shaping done by hand. I designed the table myself but it is obviously a standard Queen Ann style, so the word ‘design’ needs to be interpreted loosely. Perhaps it is better to say that I proportioned it. Linseed oil finish.

Very nice - should age and color beautifully. Not having a lathe I've never done legs like that but they came out in lovely form.

Nice outfeed table BTW ...

Re: Small Queen Ann table

Thanks for the kind words. By the way, the legs were not done on the lathe. They were carved out of a 3x3 block by first bandsawing them, then shaping them with a rasp, file and spokeshave.

Very nice. Cherry is a great wood to work with. With the oil on it, it will age beautifully.

It turned out beautiful. Cherry is such a great wood to work with. The oil finish will give it patina very quickly. Nice work.
