Drop Leaf Table


George Delaney built this table with the lumber from a hurricane damaged pecan tree that was removed from his back yard. After the initial milling, George had the lumber dried in a kiln.



When the leaves are in the upright position, the gap between the outer and the center section is barely perceivable. This is the result of the "rule joint."



In the down position, the rule joint provides for an elegant edge detail. George experimented a little with the finish and used Odie's Oil and Odie's Wood Butter. His attention to detail shows.


This table will find a home in Pennsylvania with George's daughter.
