The VERUS Bow-End Table, Curly Black Cherry (Prunus serotina)

Our VERUS Bow-End Table is a variation of our 1989 Shaker-influenced Canterbury Table. The added details include 2 bread-boarded, bow-end pieces  attached to each end of the table top using dry-fitted tenons which are “pinned” by square pegs of Black Walnut.  There is no glue used, so the joint can move with the seasons. This shows a delightful “evidence of the hand”, rarely seen in factory-made furniture. It requires a very skillful hand to execute perfectly. One slip of the square-mortising chisel and the top is ruined! The legs are also given a little added dimension in the top section.

The table shown is a fixed size, which we build to suit the room  size and number of chairs to be accomodated. Like all of our VERUS tables, it is also available with one or multiple leaves in any width or length. Not sure of the optimum size for your room or not-yet-built room? Just call and talk to Susan!  She lives and breathes space-planning, and will gladly help with your architect’s or builder’s floor plans. If its an existing room, she always suggests a visit to check dimensions, scale of the room and details of any existing furniture.
