Project Information

This is a table that my daughter, Emily, and I made together. By day she's and engineer and a scientist but she's also a pretty good blacksmith. The joints are through and through tenons mades with nothing more than hammers, chisels, and heat. Lots of heat. My part was some highly figured white oak. Needless to say, the table has some heft. Look at the handles on my chess table also.

I am a big fan of blacksmith work and the combination of wood and metal. I love this table. Simplicity and elegance, just love it!

Very nice! I too love to see wood mixed with other materials. It really gives it that organic feel and that it was made by hand with a lot of time and effort.

Nice table! Very unique and elegant.

I like the parrot too. Is that a quaker parrot?

Yes, that is a Quaker Parrot. He spends a lot of time in the shop with me except when I'm sanding a lot or finishing.

Very nice table. I like the use of the two materials and the proportions are perfect. That Quaker can get pretty loud at times. We have a bunch of them flying wild in the neighborhood. I've had as many as a dozen feeding at my bird feeder in the evening.

The bird can be very loud! We don't have any wild ones up here in Northern NY but there several flocks in the New Jersey - New York City area and we've gone down to see them a couple of times. (Too much free time?) And thanks for the comments on the table. My daughter is sending me some hinges that she made…they'll end up on something before too long.
