“Che” Entry-Way Console Table

This Entry-way hall table was made from a locally felled Norfolk olive ash tree.
The top has been planed entirely by hand as it is too wide to fit in my machinery and I wanted to keep it as a single piece.
The last time I worked so much with a hand-plane was just before the Industrial Revolution.
The drawer sides and back are made from Cedar of Lebanon, with its very distinctive scent as you open and close the drawer, dovetailed to the ash drawer front.

Inspiration was taken once more from nature, from the ribbed effect of the ebbing tide on the two hand-sculptured “baskets”. These were made in cherry, showing a subtle contrast against the olive ash.

Enough with leaving your scarves, hats and gloves anywhere. Sort it out.

There is a built-in English walnut key bowl for those pesky keys and a drawer for all those so-called important documents that we don’t need…
Leave all your stuff in the entry-way console table and relax.

You are home.
