Craftsman Library Table

Craftsman Table 5

Craftsman Table

This is a Craftsman / Arts and Crafts style library table in American white oak. The plans call for it to be quarter sawn timber, but that turns out to be very difficult to get in New Zealand so this is flat sawn.  The drawer sides are Radiata pine.

I made this table from plans in issue 73 of Australian Woodsmith magazine, but I have also seen them on the Plans Now website.

I love the simplicity of the design – in typical arts and crafts style, it yells understated functionality.  I am happy with the overall form and construction but a little disapointed in the finish.  I think it should be darker.
