Shaker Trestle Table
Shaker Lap Desk Shaker Lap Desk
(5H x 20W x 12 3/4 D)
A small travel, or lap desk, designed for stationery, envelopes, pens, and if you're so inclined, an ink bottle in the small drawer. The best part is, that if you remove the center divider, you can use the desk to store your lap-top computer, up to 14" wide. Considering that this desk was designed in the very early 1800's, it is still amazingly versatile.
$2,100. in pine, as shown
$2,200. in cherry

Round Table

Round Table
(30H x 46W x 46D)
This table has been in my catalog for a long time. It's one of my original designs. I've made it a bit larger and changed the rails from straight to slightly arched. Consistently a favorite, it seats one to four .

Dear Isle Coffee Table Deer Isle Coffee Table
17H x 36W x 18D
You needn't worry about spills on this coffee table. Similar to the end table, but the granite top is inset, rather than overlaid. Your choice on either table.
$ 2,350 
 

Breakfast Table
30H x 46W x 32D
The swell-taper turned legs and cutout rails make this table different from the rest. Ideally suited for two (four in a pinch) in the kitchen or breakfast nook. The top is a full, sturdy inch thick.
$ 3,200

 
Computer Desk

Computer Desk
30H x 65W x 28D
After writing one book using a manual typewriter and the second using a Mac, I must confess that the latter was both easier and faster. Hence the computer desk. lt comes with either a 20- or 30-inch keyboard tray, on the left or right and a regular drawer for paper, writing utensils and discs. For the technophobe, a second drawer replaces the keyboard tray at the same price.
$6,000 

Shaker Sewing Desk
39H x 31W x 24D
An almost exact reproduction of one of Elder Henry Green's sewing desks. This one originated in Alfred, ME, and was built, surprisingly, in the last decade of the nineteenth century. With twelve drawers, it has more than ample storage capacity. The pull-out work surface provides for even more usable room. One fixed shelf behind the door is just right for either needle and thread or pen and ink.

Arch Table
30H x 72W x 32D Seats six
30H x 90W x 34D Seats eight

Far and away my most often requested dining table. The curves of the top, as well as the support rails, make this a light-looking, elegant and functional table.

Arch Table 72"  $ 3,250
Arch Table 90"  $ 3,250
The most important consideration when ordering a table, is the number of people to be seated. Leg and elbow room is critical. I design my tables from the base out, so that the number of diners determines the size of the base. Then, the appropriate overhang determines the overall size of the table.
 
Your table size depends on how many people will be present most of the time, how many guests and how often. Then you can consider leaves or other extensions. My favorite solution is to have two tables: one as the main dining table, and the smaller one used as a sideboard and pulled out as needed when guests arrive.
