A Pembroke table is a small table with drop leaves. As with most drop-leaf designs, the usefulness of the table is nearly doubled with the leaves up. To support the leaves, early tables used swing legs, but most Pembroke tables use portions of the apron to support the leaves. This Federal-period design is oval shaped when the leaves are in use. The project features a curved apron and drawer front sitting on tapered legs. Stringing and/or banding work highlights the overall design.
As you work through this project you’ll learn multiple methods to taper legs, stack lamination techniques for the curved parts, including basic veneer work and how to lay out and cut the oval top, complete with drop-leaf joinery.
Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through 360 Woodworking, or you can bring your lumber with you to class.
Attendees are responsible for safety glasses and hearing protection, combination or machinist square, bench chisels, mallet, dovetail saw, marking gauge and tape measure or folding rule, if you have them. If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic. We have plenty of tools for your use in class.
