Craftsman Style Coffee Table

Limbert Coffee table

$975


An elliptical top, arched legs, and decorative piercings add grace and beauty to this Craftsman-style table modeled after a library table by Charles Limbert. This scaled-down version preserves the original overall proportions, as well as elliptical top and shelf, gently curved legs, and decorative piercings in the stretchers. Bridle joints hold the legs and aprons together, and a notched bridle joint is used where the stretchers intersect. The legs and shelf are notched where they meet, and slip tenons join the stretchers to the legs.

Dimensions: Oval top is approx 3′ x 2′, table top is 20″ in height.

Material: all solid quarter-sawn white oak.

NOTE: Shipping is done by FedEx; it is the largest package they will take, short of it going freight. I have a custom, heavy-duty cardboard box custom made for this table. The shipping is $275 to any place in continental US.

Design: G Paolini

Lost Stickley Mission Style Table

Lost Stickley Table Dressed

$1250


This is the so-called “lost” Stickley Mission style table, which was prototyped, but never was in production. What makes it unique is the front and back splay of the legs. It’s this slight angle that gives this table more character than straight-legged versions that were mass produced.

27″ high, 22″ deep, 16″ wide. Solid quarter sawn oak. (can also be made of cherry)

“We ordered two Stickley bedside tables from Patrick and could not be happier. He took such extraordinary care in the craftsmanship and the pieces are simply beautiful.” – Wendy K., Manhattan

Ukelele & Mandolin Stand


Ukelele stand

$225

I recently took up playing the ukelele; I’ve always wanted to play a string instrument, but the guitar was just too obvious – everyone plays the guitar! I wanted a different sound, and something relatively easy to play, and the ukelele was the ticket.

However, when not practicing, I had no real good place to put it down; a table top took up too much room, and just leaning it into a corner was too iffy. The commercial stands sold are very ugly and metallic; functional, yes, pretty, like my ukelele, no.

So, I created this mahogany stand for it (after several prototypes). It hangs the ukelele (or your mandolin) in a bendable, yet solid foam covered cradle, so the instrument is not having it’s bottom or side roughed up, had it been laying down – and it’s very easy to shape the cradle arms in or out to suit your instrument’s needs. My ukelele’s head is asymmetrical, so adding a slight twist to the cradle when installing it was right for me – we can discuss your instrument’s needs upon ordering.

Perhaps just as important as a great way to set your instrument, this piece just looks great – a fine complement to your beautiful ukelele or mandolin – unlike some cheap ugly metal stand. This piece would look great in your living room, office – or wherever you practice.

While this piece is in mahogany, obviously other wood choices are available, and can be combined. I could see this piece in cherry, with the top of the two “boomerangs” on the base being ebonized, or blackened, for contrast. Or, if you are the more adventurous type, we could try Zebra wood, or Purpleheart, or Yellowheart. Possibly, I could match your instrument’s woods as well.

Mission Desk (Commission)

Frontal

Frontal

Mission style desk for computer use, a commission. All quarter-sawn white oak. Legs are quarter sawn on all four sides. The client uses specialty control panels for his software, and requested I make custom cut outs for them; also, when not using the panels, he can put in filler inserts. Also built a “cage” for his components.

Rendering

Original concept rendering; client didn’t want the corbels.

Modern Mission Desk

I challenged myself to design a modern mission style desk. The contrast between the two styles was challenging. I enjoy designing with Sketchup (and the rendering engine, Kerekythea) as much as actually being in the shop.

Some specifics: The drawer pulls are hammered copper, and sunk into cutouts in the drawer, as contrasted to being attached through the drawer front by a screw. All cherry and ebonized cherry. 6′ 4″ long by 32″ at the deepest. The top is 30″ high, and has 25″ of leg clearance.
