English Arts and Crafts Hay Rake Table

This mas­sive quar­ter­sawn white oak table is used as a com­put­er table, so is low­er than a nor­mal table. It is a quite close repro­duc­tion of a type of table devel­oped by Edward Barns­ley in the ear­ly 1900’s in Eng­land. The design is quite dimen­sion­al­ly flex­i­ble.  The incised dia­monds on the edges are cut by hand and give the piece won­der­ful shad­ows and high­lights. This table was fea­tured in the Sept /​Oct 2013 edi­tion of Fine Wood­work­ing mag­a­zine .
