Tilt Top Tables

Postby Dave R » Sun Dec 16, 2018 3:20 pm

Here are a couple of tilt top tables I modeled recently for plans for Fine Woodworking. On the left, Tom McLaughlin's take on a Shaker-inspired tilt top table, and on the right, Will Myers's version of a wine tasting table from Tryon Palace in New Bern, North Carolina.

Nice, as always.
I think the wine-tasting table may be a French design; a few years back, I saw a 19th century table that's the spitting image of Will Myers's on the One King's Lane web site.
Best,

I think you're right, David. I've seen a few examples of tables that work like that one. Some are much more ornate in the undercarriage.

:D :D

I've often thought all horizontal surfaces in this house need to tilt like that when you leave them unattended for more than 15 minutes. :D
