    Demilune Table

    by Dave McCormick

    Dave kicks off the first Featured Piece of the season with his Demilune Table.  The piece is loaded with features from many skill sets, including bricking, inlay, sand shading, veneering and stringing to name a few.  Dave provides an orderly and succinct description that will be easy to follow with the aid of several pictures in the development process.

    The piece was inspired by classes taken at Phil Lowe's Furniture Institute of Massachusetts, which triggered a collegial relationship between the two.  In fact, it was at Phil's workshop where Dave took on this project.  Dave made the Demilune Table as a tribute to Phil.

    All past "Featured Piece of the Month" articles through June 2023 have been made available from the Resources tab on the website Home Page.

    The Newsletter and website are open for Featured Piece contributions for the 2023-2024 season.  Send me any questions or what you may have to me to engage in publishing your piece. 

    Remember this column is not necessarily dedicated to furniture pieces.  Tools, jigs, processes, and other woodworking related themes are also relevant.
