Bow Front Table Package Extraordinaire

by Jeff Clunie, Jim Russell, and Ken Zoller

Last month the guild presented a 100+ page guidebook for beginners called Novices.  This month brings another unusual but instructional Featured Piece of the Month.  Jim Russell, Jeff Clunie, and Ken Zoller teamed up to build and provide comprehensive documentation of their self-chosen project - a Bow Front Table.

Each author built their own table using an earlier version the plans presented here.  The documentation consists of three parts.  One part is a description of their build process materials, tools, bricking, veneering, marquetry, knife hinges, magnetic push latches, and more.  The second part is a detailed set of the plans with templates of the piece.  If that wasn't enough the third part is a SketchUp file provided for your 3D visualization pleasure and interactive resource.  If you don't use SketchUp but would like a copy (complimentary or higher model) read below.

You will be amazed by the craftsmanship, clarity of writing, supporting pictures, plans, and insights from this package.  For those always wanting to delve into building or just learning about the construction of a bow front table you have three big reasons to start now.

Click Overall Description - This will display the overall descriptive document of the Bow Front Table.
