My ancestors made furniture on Long Island NY, East Hampton, in the 17 to 18 hundreds. Someone wrote a book about them (With Hammer in Hand) and the DuPont’s put there shop and some of the furniture in an exhibit in Delaware. I copied one of their tea tables as best I could from the book, #248.

It is mahogany finished with stain, oil, poly and wax.

Nice job! Having built one of those myself, I can attest they take more time than one might think!

Beautiful work and craftsmanship. American period furniture is beautiful and never goes out of style.

Amazing skill, its perfect. It’s a very nice piece.
