Sink your teeth into some late nineteenth-century woodworking with this creative eye-catching heirloom project.
Charles Eastlake was a nineteenth century architect furniture designer and author. His work is the inspiration behind the table you’re looking at here. The distinctive look came about between two better-known style periods — the Victorian and the Arts & Crafts movement. Its stylings are not as ornate and complex as the Victorian period. But as you see in the photo above the details are more energetic than the subtle profiles of Craftsman furniture. In this plan you’ll find some great woodworking techniques including using a scratch stock and cutting the shaped legs.
