Title: Bowman table
Wood Species/Finish: Solid Walnut/ Stain and Lacquer
Designed/ Made: January 2017
Dimensions: 30" tall, 30" deep, 64" long
Design Elements: Solid wood construction throughout. Legs are joined to rails with traditional mortise and tenon joinery that is reinforced with draw-bore pins. Leg shape goes from square at the top to deeply faceted bottoms that give the sense of movement. The solid Walnut top has a slight under bevel and is held to the frame with furniture maker buttons. There is a hidden drawer in the table that is activated with a touch latch mechanism.
Notes: This piece was a commission for a private client. The goal was to create a table that could function as both a dinning table, and a desk for office work. The drawer was included in the design as a space to store office supplies. The draw was kept thin so that the table rail didn't indicate a drawer. The drawer face was sawn out of the rail to create a seamless grain orientation and therefore a more subtle look.
