Demi Lune Console Table

April 8, 2010

We made this table using Bird’s Eye Maple veneer with Rosewood feet and detailing to complement our client’s Art Deco period house.

This semi-circular table has a single drawer, which has a curved front and handcut dovetails.  Bird’s Eye Maple is a very hard wood with a very decorative grain structure created by the birdseyes.

Bird’s Eye Maple features in another of our table designs here.  Have a close look at our MWL desk – it’s asymmetric design allows more space for a personal computer.

Moulding on cabinet to match fireplace surround

A pair of cabinets made in oak and stone to complement our client’s garden room: the moulding on the top of the cabinets is shaped to match the fireplace surround and the stone matches the stone floor. The cabinets were designed to house hi-fi equipment and vinyl record collection. Glass shelves completed the display section.
