Queen Anne Dining Table in Tiger Maple
This Queen Anne style dining table was modeled after a New England style dining table.  The table is based on several distinctive Queen Anne features including the turned pad feet, hand shaped cabriole legs and a molded table edge. The table is constructed of solid tiger maple (also called curly maple) with an overall size of  72" x 42" x 30" high.   To ensure accurate period construction and details, the top of this table was built from a highly figured four board matched set  (four boards cut sequentially from the same log for excellent color and grain matching).   The table top is constructed of three wide, grain matched boards and the remaining board from the set was used to build the aprons. This represents a significant difference from readily available tables - the boards in this top were 12 - 14" wide on average with beautiful coloring and grain patterns. The corners of the top were rounded to follow the contour of the table base.

Hand shaped cabriole legs with hand turned pad feet.
Legs jointed to apron with pinned mortise and tenon joints.
Thumbnail table edge profile with rounded corners to match rounded profiles of the base.
Table edge profile and shape of top can be selected from many styles.
Table can be stained or left in a natural color.
Finished with hand rubbed varnish, buffed and waxed to a satiny sheen.

The table size, style, wood selection, and coloring can be customized to suit the customer's requirements.
