Fretwork Table
« on: October 02, 2007, 07:50:27 PM »
FWW #77 July/August 1989 page 71 has a photo of a fretwork table. I have been unable to find any photos/plans for fretwork tables.
Can you direct me to a source?
Thank you very much,

Don, I'm not sure exactly what type of fret-work table you are looking for but in his book "Thomas Elfe:Cabinetmaker" Sam Humphrey has measured drawings and photographs of 2 pembroke style breakfast tables with the signature Elfe fretwork. No use to clutter up forum space but if you are interested in this type table let me know off forum and I'll be glad to give you some details. John McAlister
