The Leiden Table and Bowl

This table was commissioned to replace an existing piece that was failing in both construction and utility. The kitchen table they had been living with for years was beginning to rock back and forth a bit too much, but it was also too small to be useful when their family of 5 all attempted to sit around it. For this particular family, the kitchen is the social nerve center of the house, so it was imperative that the new table be both inviting enough and strong enough to fit the bill.

The only parameters I was given when designing were that it should be made of Honduran Mahogany, it should be somewhat traditional in style, and it had to be round. What I came up with was a table that feels traditional when you look at it, but contains some more contemporary elements in its curves and edge treatments.

After I had picked out a good batch of Honduran Mahogany, I decided to go with a large, partially turned center column which flowed into hexagonal sides at the top and bottom. I played around with several different leg styles until I arrived at the finished product which contains some traditional curves but also resonates with a fresh, clean look. The legs were then fastened to the center column with oversized sliding dovetail joints which will provide generations of rock solid strength.

The tabletop itself is a 49″ perfect circle supported from underneath by a lap jointed cross brace. Because of the extra thickness of this brace, any vertical movement in the tabletop will be greatly reduced over time.

Toward the end of the project, I noticed that I had a substantial piece of the lumber used to turn the center column left over, and, not being one to waste fine materials, I thought it would make a really beautiful bowl which would match in color perfectly with the table. So, as a surprise gift to the family, I took a few hours and turned a bowl and accompanying lid. I have begun to refer to it affectionately as the “Pumpkin Bowl” as that is the image it conjures up for me for some reason.
