The entire table was made from one 8/4 board of plum pudding mahogany. The top was book matched and turned to create the outer lip. The pie crust edge was then hand carved with chisels and gouges.


A brace on the underside keeps the top flat and allows it to flip up 90° when not in use. It also presents the beautiful figure quite nicely while against a wall or in a corner.


A quatrefoil was carved into the upper half of the column. This is a detail I had admired on an English flip-top table and decided to incorporate into this piece.


The feet begin with a level bead, followed by a hard ridge line at the toe which terminates into a soft round at a calf-high sock” detail.


The Pie Crust Tip Top Tea Table is made of Plum Pudding Mahogany. The inspiration for this piece came from two places- one was the determination to use a beautiful piece of lumber my dad had given me in a righteous way. The other was to overcome the intimidation I had felt towards carving a pie crust top. It is finished with a dozen coats of waterlox varnish, leveled and rubbed down with rottenstone, then a final coat of shellac and paste wax.
