If anyone reading this has not seen the build of that chair and want
further evidence of Dereks' master class skill, it was another fine
example.
Agreed! The table is outstanding craftsmanship for sure, but for me the chair is the most interesting piece of the two. Nice work Derek.

This is some of the most masterful furniture I’ve witnessed.

Beautiful work (as usual) Derek on the table! I especially enjoyed the video on the half-blind dovetails on the lipped drawers. Lots of nice little "nuggets" of wisdom and technique there - thanks!

Such amazing work. I showed it to my wife and she was blown away as well. It looks so much better than the model. Like looking at a Yugo for inspiration for a Ferrari.

A beautiful piece, Derek!

I've enjoyed following this build from the beginning and marveled at the craftsmanship that went into (just like all your other pieces...)

Thank you for sharing this with us!

I wish there was a "thank you" button. I would be pressing it for every reply here! Thanks all!

Kind regards

Way out of my league! Precision and elegance abounds. Your attention to detail even extends to your pictures. The "obligatory dovetail shot" has each drawer successive drawer extended the same length beyond the drawer in front. Awesome job, Derek.

I want in too!

It's a beautiful piece Derek with your usual attention to detail every step of the way. I enjoyed the journey and congratulate you. That curly jarrah complements your design perfectly.

Wow, Derek! I'm not sure which I like better - the hall table or the chair. Both are stunning!
