Marble-Top Side Table


 

Although it started its life as a coffee table, by the time it got to me, the table was highly unstable and only barely holding together. Together, the client and I decided to remake the legs, add some stucture, redo the joinery with appropriate brass fittings, and let it live out the rest of its days as a side-board table. The rounded, tapered, legs were fully shaped by hand, using handplanes and spokeshaves.
