Hall Table
materials: reclaimed Blackwood
dimensions: 1250 x 350 x 920mm


The client brief specified the table be of appropriate size to fit in a narrow entry hallway. It should also be Shaker in style and preferably be built from Blackwood. The proportions of the table were subtly altered from a traditional Shaker form to a more elongated and raised form. The intention was to "lighten" the table so as not to dominate the confined space in which it was to be placed. The table top is highly figured and bookmatched. In another subtle shift from Shaker design principles, inlays of the endgrain of the legs were placed in the table top, in response to the client's excitement after seeing the endgrain while visiting the workshop.
