It all seems like a dream now...
After building a gorgeous kitchen for a client many years ago now, he showed me a picture of a Louis XVI table in a book of antique furniture that he felt would fit his space perfectly.
He comissioned me to build it considering the space he had to fill and using the picture for proportions.
We distressed the table to go with the era from which it was drawn based on the paints likely available at the time, and imagining how it may have been repainted over the years.
The construction process and the finished product were all so satisfying I thought it might interest others, so I pitched the idea to Fine Woodworking Magazine.
The result is this article here.
Please enjoy and let me know what you think!
