Sewing Table Progress

















I finally have all 5 tables glued together, here is the last one showing all the pieces.













The two on the left already have a layer of Danish oil on them, isn't the grain and color just fantastic?













View from the top, they all have a scrap piece of wood in the back where the sliding screen will fit in.













All four sides in one view.














Close up with one of the Queen Anne chairs, there are still a lot of work to be done, the candle slide, the small drawer that will have partitions for ink, pen, scissors, etc, the big drawer for the needlework, the screen in the back and the top that will be able to raise at an angle to form a writing slope. Oh and little caster wheels, my husband is helping me figure out how we are going to make those since all the commercial ones are too big for this project.

Thanks for explaining at the end what features still need to be made for these tables. Cos I was looking at them, and wondered what made them into sewing tables... all the bits and bobs that come with sewing need to be stored no? Now it's all clear :) Little space to put all those drawers in, but that makes them so lovely and delicate.

Only thing i still don't grasp is the liftable screen... what's that feature for/do?

Good luck with the casters and all the rest. Still a long way to go, but so far they look very good. Proportion wise and the wood is really nice indeed.

Debora, the screen is there to prevent red cheeks from the fire, a lady of the 1800's was supposed to have a very smooth complexion.
