    Federal style demilune table done

    I should call this my covid table. Took darn near most of 2020. Although in all fairness, it was put on hold for several other projects over the year. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I do love the style and a half circle table has been on my bucket list for some time.

    Funny thing is, I didn’t build it for any particular space. In fact, not even sure where it’s going to go. LOML is already rolling her eyes when I mentioned next up was a full round version.

    Very nice. Walnut? Bent lamination for the apron?

    Thanks Stan. The top and apron are rosewood with curly cherry trim. Legs are Brazilian cherry. The apron was made using the bricking method.

    It's a great piece. I think a full frontal shot would quiet any doubters. What we have now makes the apron bead blend in
    too much with the cross banding ,making it look too heavy. But I'm sure it is NOT!

    Mel, thanks for your comment. I fretted over the apron size for some time. I went with Latta’s FWW dimensions pretty closely, but his featured table was larger. So scaling it down was pure judgment. Might have been better slightly smaller. I’m just glad that when I bump it, it doesn’t fall over

    Super nice Phil!! There are so many different skill sets for the federal style furniture that you did extremely well.
