Update on the console table

Yesterday I've cut out the curtains. I decided not to cut the tennons but to try and carve away as much as I can, before I'd do that. The side curtains have the same design as the front (partially) so I'm working on all sides simultaneously. I'm having detailed photographs of the original table at hand to help and guide me.

Have a great weekend, and enjoy this special Sunday,


  1. Bonne continuation!
    Amicalement, Dominique

  2. Very exciting :) It's coming along great! Thanks for posting your progress--

  3. It is interesting to see how you work, love the style.

  4. Cuanto trabajo!!! Es fabuloso como trabaja la madera, me encanta.
    Un abrazo.

  5. Another wonderfull project! Great to see how the construction is made.
    The table will be gorgeous when finished I'm sure, you've got "magic hands"!

  6. Thank you all for your kind reactions. It's a rather odd thing to make and I'm not sure if my approach could find the approval of a carpenter? ;) The construction is 'simple' but it's fiddly to match to carving of the curves. And the wood is turning out rather disappointing, i'm sad to say :( It's a new piece of stock and was kept in the same condition as previous pear. But it feels dry and brittle... so it acquires a bit more delicacy. Still, fruitful weekend, hope yours was that way too!

  7. Debora... It is going to be fantastic! You have gotten a lot done already.

    I hope you don't have too much trouble with the wood. I can't imagine doing something so difficult and having to fight with the materials or tools you are using. I look forward to seeing your progress.

  8. J'aimerai pouvoir en faire autant!! superbe!!

  9. Hello Debora,
    What amazing progress. I cannot wait to see the finished piece. I really enjoy following your work.
    big hug,

  10. Oh Debora,
    it looks fantastic I cant wait to see it put together you are a real craftswoman


  11. Prachtig!!!!! Blijf het enorm kunstig vinden en ook geweldig om de vorderingen te zien.

  12. Wat ben je al een end gevorderd!
    Leuk om zo van dichtbij te zien ontstaan.
    Jammer dat het hout niet zo lekker werkt als de vorige keer; zijn daar geen truukjes voor? licht bevochtigen of zo (maar dan gaat het natuurlijk weer werken...)
    Nu ik de close-up foto zie besef ik ineens dat er natuurlijk ook een enorme partij schuurwerk aan te pas komt om alles zo mooi glad te krijgen...
    Benieuwd naar de volgende update maar neem je tijd... :)
