Has two drawleaves that pull out that extend the length of the table. Every edge of the tabletop and leaves are Beautifully and curvaceously carved. I've given you a few pictures to show the high quality of craftsmanship that went into this table by disassembling.
Please look at the work carefully. There are huge Flathead wood screws used to hold the boards in place. The legs are curved in a Carved Cabriole style going down into large scrolls that sit on large carved Pedestal feet. All the aprons are carved with Acanthus leaves that also have 4 adjoining small scrolls on every side. This table was obviously cared for extremely well and it shows.
A table that will last for many decades to come and that can be handed down through many generations. If you want the best quality in French Tablesthis is one of them! TIGER OAKQUARTER SAWN WHITE OAK. Quarter sawing means cutting at a 90-degree angle from the growth rings on a log to produce a vertical and uniform pattern grain.
The grain on the face of a quarter-sawn board will be parallel lines that are straight, tight and run the length of the board. The closer the growth rings are to being 90-degrees from the face of the board, the greater the chance to getting the famous medullary ray flecks.Additional aesthetics include wavy and interlocked grains. Structural benefits to quarter sawn oak include that it reduces twisting, warping and cupping, holds finishes better, and does not allow liquids to readily pass through it. Quarter sawn lumber is valued more than plain sawn lumber because of the greater time it takes to produce. The production of plain sawn lumber is much more efficient as it allows woodworkers to cut lumber quicker and produces less waste. Quarter sawn lumber on the other hand, takes longer.
To quarter saw a log, first a log has to be cut into quarters. A board will then be cut off one face, and then the next board will be cut from the opposite face. The faces will be alternated until the quarter is completely cut. A quarter sawn piece radiates elegance and traditional beauty. The extra work put into it is admirable and the results truly stand out.Antique and Vintage Used Items. Please Note that my Antique and Vintage Items for sale are not meant to appear New.
