Linnaea Tables

The Linnaea collection has end tables and coffee tables. Only I've neglected to get any photos of the coffee table, so you'll just have to make due with a look at the end tables.

A curved front on the drawer and shelf, with the curve running along all four sides of the top. It looks a little big on its own, but works well when it is next to the Linnaea seating.

On the production front, we've been able to get our apprentice to the point where he can just bang out the couches. I've got a little catch up work to do now that the tables are finalized, so we can finish all of our current commitments, and then its off to build the second round.

We already have drawings for a dresser, a chest of drawers, a bed table, and a sideboard. All of these pieces were designed as a case, with a bowed front, curved drawers, a footed pedestal, and a quasi floating top. Quasi because it will be raised above the case by a recessed framework, creating the floating look from further away.

Hopefully I will be free of these 21 production pieces be the end of the week, and get on with the newness.

Mirror Stand

It's been a bit hectic at the shop since the Lemonade Social a month ago. With 2 sofa sets sold at the social, and another set the week following, I've been mostly working on those 11 pieces plus the 10 tables (coffee and end tables that is) that go along with them.

What did get a little overshadowed was a mirror stand, for which I was requested to craft. The lady whom I made the copper wall hanging/disc into a coffee table, had a mahogany mirror that she wanted a stand for. And since she enjoyed my table so much, and got to meet me then, she wanted me to make this as well.

Fluting on the 3 exposed sides of the post, with a finial, and our Chevel mirror stand foot, made a nice simple stand that looked very nice. And the little light colored area on the rear is my cherry plaque with my signature.
