Completed Walnut Hall Table

I finally finished the walnut hall table and presented it to the class on Friday evening. We all enjoyed a few drinks and celebrated the piece. It's nice to have it done, I was itching to get started on something new.

Here are some pictures that I took of the piece in the shop. I'll be getting some professional pictures taken soon, I'll post those once I have them. In the meantime, enjoy these...

Gluing Drawer Pulls

During the past few days I made the drawer pulls for the eight drawers in my walnut hall table. Yesterday I glued them in. It was neat to see all the drawers lined up on the bench. The pulls were milled from maple and matched the color of the curly maple drawer fronts. I mocked up different pulls. My original intention was to use shaker style pulls turned from walnut, but after seeing the mockup, I decided that there was too much contrast, and the turned pulls didn't really suit the style of the table. These pulls were made the same way as the ones I used on Donna's Cabinet (those were walnut).
