The "Sagamore" timber framed quarter-sawn white oak coffee table - This table has 54 mortise and tenon joints incorporated into it - 48 of them are pegged with walnut and two are through mortises. Quarter sawing a log is labor intensive and expensive, but it produces "rays" or flecks in the grain that are very unique. Real mission furniture is made from quarter-sawn white oak. This table features classic New England timber framing with "ships knees" bracing. The table top is distinctly quarter-sawn white oak with very noticeable rays in the grain. The table boasts mortised "bread-board" ends that feature slotted pegs on the outer pegs to allow for expansion and contraction. This table also features a magazine rack built into the framing of it with 7 mortised and pegged purlins. It also features a full dove-tailed drawer with a shop-made through-mortised pull. This is a one of a kind artisan piece, extremely rugged and entirely hand-made in my shop. The top measures 38 1/2" x 20 - It stands 18" floor to top and the legs are 3" wide on all sides.
