Contemporary Queen Anne Table in Mahogany
This mahogany dining table was built in a contemporary Queen Anne style for a customer who wanted a large, well-built table for their family.  The base is made from solid mahogany. The base features modern cabriole legs, beaded aprons, and square pegs.  The table top was constructed from solid mahogany and features breadboard ends.   The overall size of this table is 84" x 38" x 30" high.

As with many of my tables, to ensure accurate period construction and details, the top of this table was built from a three board matched set  (three boards cut sequentially from the same log for excellent color and grain matching).  This represents a significant difference from readily available tables - the boards in this top were 13-14" wide  with beautiful coloring and grain patterns. The table size, style, wood selection, and coloring can be customized to suit the customer's requirements.  

Modern cabriole legs with rounded corner edges.
Legs jointed to apron with pinned mortise and tenon joints.
Table skirts have a decorative bead around the lower edge.
Table edge profile and shape of top can be selected from many styles.
Distressing & tool marks can be added to the piece to create a natural aged appearance.
Table can be stained or left in a natural color.
Finished with hand rubbed varnish, buffed and waxed to a satiny sheen.
