Arts & Crafts Table

Made by Stan Otto

Stan Otto, from Edmonton, Alberta made this arts and crafts table, with some Greene and Greene influence. It’s made of black cherry, with purpleheart pegs, and is finished with Danish oil and wax. According to Otto, the hardest part of the build was a tie between fitting the half-lapped pieces of the lower shelf and fitting the curved aprons to the legs. He was looking for a challenge when he decided to build this table. “Having never built a round table, I thought it would be a challenge, and it was,” admitted Otto.
