Furniture from the Arts and Crafts period, like this Stickley Tile-top Tea Table, are both stylish and functional. Traditionally, furniture of this period was made in quarter-sawn oak, but this project would look great in just about any wood.
Stickley Tile-top Tea Table
You’ll be copying a rare example of Stickley design. While the original size is roughly 20″ X 25″, you can modify the size to suit your needs. The beauty of making a project of this kind in such a small class is room for customization.
Some of the skills learned in the Book Stand class are:
- Project Design
- How to accurately plan and make a tile top
- Through mortise-and-tenon joinery
Each student should supply his or her own:
- Safety glasses and hearing protection
- Combination or machinist square
- Bevel gauge
- Bench chisels
- Carvers mallet
- Dovetail saw
- Marking gauge
- Smooth plane or jack plane
- Block plane
- Tape measure or folding rule
If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic, there are plenty of tools for you to use in class.
