Entry Tables

©2011 by Charles A. Plesums, Austin, Texas, USA

A small table is common near the entry door, to catch mail, keys, and other "junque." It can be a traditional rectangular shape, or sometimes is an opportunity for a semi-circular table such as this.

A drawer is common, to hide keys and other items that might be tempting to a stranger visiting the house (we won't discuss whether salesmen should stay outside or be invited in).

Half Circle - Demilune - Table

Entry table 3275

This is the half-round table before delivery - the front legs are tapered on three sides, and the back two legs are tapered on two sides, as traditional with "square" tables. The top is a "starburst" of quartersawn walnut - fine straight grain with narrow pieces.

The drawer front was curved, but I played with the curve so it would have some interest as it connected with the legs. The front could also have matched the table apron to be less visible.

Table as delivered

As you can see, this entry table was built to fill a specific niche near the front door of the client. This is sometimes called a demilune table, half moon, or more generally a curved semicircle shape.
