Stickly Dining Table


Stickley Dining Table in Walnut

 

In a few short days I will move to Washington DC from Bloomington, IN. I will have spent two years here to the day, driving in on May 15, 2010, and driving out the same day two years later. With just a few days to spare, I finally completed my dining table.  It’s based off of a design from FWW called Stickley Done Lightly, which appeared in cherry. I did this in walnut, and changed a few features that I feel lighten the design a little.

This piece is built from the same tree as the last two walnut pieces I’ve done, my bar and Rach’s coffee table. All came from a single lumber purchase I made last March.

 

I began by cutting the legs.

 

First in half, and then ripped on the bandsaw.

 

Then I made the top. Obviously, this is the most important and thus time consuming piece of the project, so I spent a long time ensuring the timbers were flat and jointed properly.

 

 

Then I made the apron parts:

I assembled the bottom with my friend Vincent’s help, and then Rach and I moved both pieces upstairs and put them in place on a sunny spring afternoon.

The Suzani we got in Istanbul from an Afghan Uzbek guy who gave us the hook up when we spoke to him in Uzbek and Dari.

We made our first meal for the new table, soba noodles with mangos and fried eggplant from Yotam Ottolenghi’s book Plenty.

I decided to put some new handles on some Japanese kitchen knives I got from Japan Woodworker.

The wood I used for the handles was given to us as an engagement present by Rach's dad, and is some of the most stunningly beautiful wood I have ever seen. We decided that projects created with this wood become 'family projects'.

I turned it to a slight taper on the lathe and then added a brass collet to keep it tight.
