    Hall Table

    This has been a long build that I have asked several questions about on here. Finely have it done and sitting in its new home.
    What inspired me was the discovery of Stickley Design's which I have never really looked closely at before. I have learned a lot about Stickley and Craftsman furniture design and construction. I'm sure there will be other Stickley projects in my near future.

    The construction part went really good. I was happy with the way it went together. Several techniques I have never done before so I learned a lot.
    I'm not real pleased with the finish but it will be fine. Next project will get another kind of finish.

    Very fine work. It looks very nice from where I sit. Interesting work on the drawer joints, are the back corners done the same way?

    Thanks
    The back of the drawers are dado's with a slide in bottom.
    I used three coats of shellac for the inside of the drawers and bottom.
    The side guide rails worked really good and not to hard at all to do. Some fine tuning wax and they worked great.

    Beautiful table Mike. I can't imagine what you don't like about the finish; it looks great to me.

    Wow very nice. I would love to make something like this but I vowed to not give my wife any more horizontal surfaces.

    That's a beautiful table Mike. The construction and the finish are great. Nice job all around. Can you give me more details on the drawer guide rail construction?

    We are our own worst critics. That looks great and fits the spot beautifully.

    Really well done, Mike. Itís a beautiful piece of furniture you will enjoy for a lifetime. Finish looks great to me. As hobbyists, it never really matters how long it takes. I find the journey is just as satisfying as the end. And in the end, even if it takes a year to build, itís enjoyed for generations.

    You nailed it! I have never been a fan of the larger rays in QSWO, but your table top shows how to match them across several boards to great effect. Thanks for sharing!
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!
