A Small Queen Anne Gateleg Table – Part Three

There’s nothing particularly complicated or exceptional about the construction of the table’s frame other than possibly, the (aforementioned) upper gate pivot.

After drawboring all the joints, I assembled the gates (securing the rails to the stiles with 1/4″ oak pegs) before incorporating them into the table’s frame and pegging it too (fig. 1).

    Really nice JP. I’m not sure what’s better – the table or your exquisite taste.

    Cheers.

  2. While visiting a well-known museum of furniture in the US, I happened to notice that one of the bird cage turnings on a famous Chippendale pie crust table was upside down. The restoration personnel were not minding their P’s and Q’s on that job.
