The Other Solomon Table & a Bench

After my table-building frenzy this spring, I’ve been in a bit of a dry spell.  Too many other projects going on, although I have a couple more tables in my head that are dying to come out!

Last week, though, I built a bookcase for one of the couples who bought a table from me, and I realized I never showed off their table, so here it is!

Red Hen Home Solomon Table 11

This table is a slightly smaller version of the Solomon table I built for myself

You can see the details of the brackets I cut for each corner.

I love the look of my doily runner on the wood!

Red Hen Home Solomon Table 5

They wanted a bench for one side of their table, and we chose to do a modified version of Ana White’s Providence Bench

This one has a top made out of 3/4” thick boards to match the table top.

They sent a picture of how it looks in their new home…I love that!

I’ll share their new bookcase in a couple of days!
