I'm in the middle of a big project that won't be "blogworthy" for awhile, so I thought I'd take a break and show off one of my favorite pieces of the handmade furniture which I build as a hobby.
My wife named this piece "The Gypsy Table."
It's a rustic hallway table, or sofa table. Narrow enough to fit in a slim space like an entryway, yet long enough to go behind a sofa so that you have a place to set your books and drinks.
The top is made from locally milled lumber. I left the bandsaw marks on it, which made a beautiful pattern.
As you can see, there are also some interesting details on the ends, with old fashioned mortise-and-tenon joints.
My favorite part is the bottom, which has wooden slats and a whimsical folk pattern along the edge of the black rail.
The Gypsy Table isn't my only sofa or hallway table. I've got a few other favorites, too, like this classic black version....
...which has antique wormy chestnut wood on the top and the bottom shelf.
The simple shape of these tables tables means that they fit in with any kind of decor, from traditional to contemporary. So if you need a long, narrow table that's just the right fit, give me a call. Free delivery if you're local to Asheville!
