Folding Card Table



Made by Kerry Cox

Inspired by the work by Glenn Huey, Kerry built this African mahogany card table with a mixture of hand and power tools.

The front skirt is constructed of alternating layers of pine blocks, covered with shop-sawn veneer.

The rear skirt/swing arm assembly is birch. All joints are traditional mortise and tenon on the rear legs, dovetails joining the rear and front skirts, and bridle joints for the front legs.

The stringing is maple and the banding and inlays were purchased. The edge treatment consists of maple stringing and mahogany veneer segments.

After protecting the inlay and stringing with blonde shellac, the mahogany was stained with a water-based dye, and then boiled linseed oil was applied and followed up with five coats of garnet shellac.

This project was selected by Canadian Woodworking's forum members to be featured here.
