An Ash Cricket Table
The leg cradle.
The frame assembled and pegged.
Leg detail showing some of the olive staining.
The three table top boards rub-jointed together.
The bearer in situ.
Radiused and tapered bearer end.
The table top pegged in place…
… and nailed on.
The completed table in-the-white.
I applied the base stain which interestingly revealed some rather beautiful quilting in the legs.
The ‘patina’ was then built up with oil, resins and wax.
The draw pegs are left slightly proud to imitate the effects of shrinkage in the legs.
Highlights exhibit more wear than the lowlights.
