Coffee Table with ball & claw feet

IMG_3374

This is a coffee table made out of walnut that I did for some clients. The clients had found the tiles for the top while in Europe. They contacted me to design a table for the tiles. Their sofa has ball and claw feet and this table was to go in front of it so I suggested we carry that into the coffee table.

This is a close up of the leg. It takes me eight hours to carve a ball and claw foot , for the foot alone. The total time in this table was 120 hours.IMG_3384

I scrolled the apron to match the c-scrolls in the pattern of the tiles.

Drawers are remade

I had to make three drawers that were missing. All the surfaces have been hand planed. Later all new wood will be colored to match the desk.

I had one original drawer to copy. I used a 14 degree dovetail that has as 3/16″ neck on the pins . The drawer sides are walnut with popular back and bottoms. What is unusual is the top edge of the drawers sides and backs are rounded  over. I did this with a molding plane. Drawer bottoms were fielded with a hand plane to fit the groove in the sides and fronts.
