Here’s a reproduction William Whitehead card table I finished in April while I was between jobs. Again, copied from Rob Millard’s www.americanfederalperiod.com.

Details:
D shaped figured mahogany veneered leaves, with inset line inlay enclosed by holly boarder. Cross banded top edge. Satinwood veneered frieze with six figured mahogany ovals, bordered with light/dark stringing, above complex banding. Tapered legs with sand shaded urn / flower ovals inlaid into plinth. Line inlaid legs w/ bellflowers. Saw tooth inlaid cuff band. Fifth leg on fly apron with rounded knuckle joint.

This table is built traditionally: bent lamination poplar aprons, mortise and tenon legs, hammer veneering, and hide glue. Leaf cores are shopmade poplar plywood, cross veneered twice on each side. Bandings, medallions, and pictorial inlays are custom made from ebony, mahogany, holly, and dyed veneers, sand shaded for depth.

Sweeet! Love the colors of wood you used. They complement each other wonderfully!
