This is scaled down version of C. R. Mackintosh’s Hill House hall table. Lots of interesting twists on a table that has six legs. The construction for the most part follows the original, except I used screws and plugs to attach the stretchers to the legs. The original has through tenons, I couldn’t see making 12 through tenons just to paint them over. The base is paint grade poplar and the top is quarter sawn sycamore, love the grain.

Great job on a Macintosh table. Instantly recognizable design. The QS sycamore is a great detail for the top.

The black base and sycamore work nicely together. That top has wonderful character without being “noisy”.

A very interesting table to start with. I agree with above, that black base plays perfectly with the top.

He seems to have used that wide thin leg a lot.:

Thanks for posting.
