    Oval Biedermeier Dining Table: I veneered this pedestal based table with a combination of maple and and mappa burl.  To decrease weight I glued baltic birch plywood to the very light corrugated cardboard core.  I then added a curved laminated maple band around the periphery.  The maple veneer with mappa burl insets cover these core boxes. I halved the top for mobility. The base is a sandwich of solid baltic birch plywood with laminated maple edging.  I turned the poplar legs on a lathe and painted them black.  Finally I sprayed  the whole table with DuraVar catalyzed laquer.  I have used this construction technique to build other large tables as well.  See: Conference Table

     

    The customer had seen and saved a New Yorker ad I ran.  She called asking if I had ever made anything in the Biedermeier style and would I be interested in making a large dining table.  I told her I had not worked in that particular style but would be happy to give it a try or to recommend someone else.  Over the next year we corresponded. She sent pictures of a Biedermeier Sideboard she had bought and also sent me a book with pictures of Beidermeier furniture. I responded with various drawings and revisions of drawings and she finally chose the Oval Biedermeier Dining Table you see pictured here.
