Dr. Hacker’s Walnut Coffee Table
By Dr. Robert Hacker from Long Island, NY
Added on April 2, 2012
A walnut coffee table with inlay, line and berry, a french polished top. Constructed with 3 hand cut dovetail drawers of figured maple and a rosewood species. Hand decorated drawer and skirt adornments and solid brass pulls. Tabletop measures 37.5 inches long by 22 inches wide 19.5 inches off the ground. It has beautifully tapered legs with exotic wood inlay. The front skirt and side skirts have complex inlay adornments.
Table top design is inspired from 16th century Italian chest on display in Florence Italy. The table is a beautiful mix of refinement, detail and handmade craftsmanship; truly a one of a kind piece.
I am a 2nd year woodworker who has been a product of The Wood Whisperer and Fine Woodworking self study. This is my favorite project to date. I am a vascular surgeon by day but love to relax with the power tools at night.
It would be my dream to sell some of my projects and really make a fun part time endeavor of this. If you’re interested in the table, please feel free to contact me. RobertHackermd@gmail.com
