635 French provincial wine tasting table

A classic wine tasting table in the manner of the tilt top vintner's tables of the 18th and 19th century
Built of sustainable northwest alder and hardened chemically as part of the finish; wears a "living finish" and will be easy-care.



More closeup pics of top.
Having a traditional looking lyre-shaped base, influenced by historical tables but designed and built by us. 
Showing center stretcher between the feet; mortise and tenon pegged construction.  The stretcher going lengthwise in the center of the table was, of course, given careful consideration by us and is the perfect height for propping feet up after a long day.
An additional close view of stretcher end and peg. 
The finish is a nice medium honey brown (G-1) with peachy undertones.
