looking forward to following this one … what is your estimate of man hours involved ?Latest Commission
I just got the go ahead to build a 17 foot dining room table. This going to be challenging, as it has three pedestal bases, which are heavily carved, have some japanning and gold leaf, in addition to veneering.
The top will be veneered, include some marquetry, have a couple leaves, which will be stored in table structure.
I have to admit, I'm wondering what I got myself into this time, but being the president of the imaginary; "If It Ain't Impossible, Why Bother Club", I just couldn't resist.
Due to it's sheer size, I'll have to re-arrange the shop a bit.
I'll try to keep a well detailed photo log to keep posting the project details.
Wish me luck!
