Demilune Table

I just finished and delivered this demilune table (demilune means half-moon). It is made of Pacific yew and was custom-made to fit against a short wall has a strategically placed shelf above a cold air return duct and below the power outlet and phone jack.

The most challenging part in the construction was making the bent-laminated apron. I made form and used all the clamps I could fit to hold the laminations to the form while the glue cured. With shop-made veneer, I covered the apron and drawer face to achieve the continuous grain right through. On either side, to accent the drawer, I added dark-brown-dyed maple moldings to draw the eye to the drawer. I carved and dyed a matching pull.

I would be delighted if you left a comment!
