Philly Federal End Table
« on: January 04, 2017, 11:47:42 AM »
I am looking to build a Philly Federal end table with string and bell flower inlay.  Cannot seem to find any measured drawings or plans online.  Does anyone know where I may be able to procure a set of plans?  Also I have no inlaying experience and could use some advice on where to find good instruction on both the inlay and how to finish the piece so that the inlay does not get muddied by the stain and top coat.  Thanks

Steve Latta has made three great DVD on inlay, stringing and making your on bandings.  They are available from Lie-Nielsen

Do you have a pic of which Federal end table you are looking to make?
