Student Work–Kevin Cork

Being a novice woodworker I was somewhat reluctant to take on this project but I loved the curves and flowing lines on the table so much I had to try it. It is pretty simple but very elegant. The real challenge was making the cabriole legs which I had never done before. But, with the great instruction and guidance in the course they were relatively easy. I was amazed how well they turned out. Finishing the piece at home was another big challenge since I had never done much of that either. But, thanks to Lonnie’s help I managed to get it done right. It has a beautiful golden color that looks awesome through filtered sun in the late afternoon…tea time! Tiger maple is now my favorite wood.

Thanks Lonnie! ~ Kevin Cork
