X-Frame Dining Table Commission

A young couple came across my X-Frame dining tables design on the Wood Works website and contacted me through our online enquiry form. They were seeking a custom designed dining table to complement their recently renovated house by Robert Henry Architects.

Through a consultative process with Mitchell Rice at Monaro Timbers, and the clients and myself we selected the timber and arrived at the desired shape of the top and the profile for the legs and cleats.

It was very satisfying for me to find a solution to cover the holes for the furniture screws in the cleats by using  a cap held in place with rare earth magnets.
