A TALE OF TWO TABLES - recycling an antique table

What do you do if you have a beautiful hand crafted dining table and no room for it in the dining room?

Now the table was fairly large at 42" wide and 50" long.
The owner asked me to make two bedside tables, because
they did have the room for large fancy legged tables in the bedroom.


One was to be a desk type of table, and the other to have a
 bottom shelf.  I used one leaf and an off cut from the top to
make the shelf.

I ended up trimming the front of the shelf with pieces of
wood I had in my collection but everything else that was used
to build these tables are from the original piece. The owners
will paint the tables and if we keep our fingers crossed and
beg ever so slightly we might get some photos when they are done.

where you get sneak peaks of what I am up to.
