18th Century Campaign Style Folding Table

Top dyed antique cherry and sealed with polyurethane

Hi everyone. Here are some pictures of the 18th Century Campaign Table that I recently finished. It turned out quite well with the antique cherry stain, polyurethane coating on the top and the lexington green milk paint on the aprons and legs. I’ve learned a lot in making this project and hope to refine the leg profile design and the latching mechanism for securing the leg and apron assemblies. All in all, I am pleased that the design has the look of an 18th century piece, achieved the lightness sought by my client, and can be folded up easily for trips to reenactments.

Take care,
Jim
