This week's well made is a lovely custom skirted table-which is skewing a stronger green in the image than in real life. This well made table features a removable skirt, inverted pleats with button detail and small bouillon fringe. The top is a miter, which is lovely for a striped table and allows the stripes to appear aligned at the edge. The table top is protected with glass and the table is custom made with the addition of the leg stabilizer creating a shelf.
There are a few key points on this table that are above and beyond well made and some that are a great standard to look for when you are having custom work done.
The "above and beyond" points are:
mitered table top
The standards to look for are:
table under-lined in double napped flannel
lined skirt "hidden" seam
|Perfectly aligned stripes on the mitered top fabric!|
|This is the button closure of the skirt the wrap tie is there for gentle security of the seam.|
|The top of the table connects to the legs with a box called an apron. Note that the apron on this table is a miter joint edge which prevents any fabric snagging from the end of the wood like a butt joint could create.|
|Another nice feature of this custom made table is the lap-type joint legs and the cross blocking the corners of the table. This table is also screwed and glued as opposed to nailed together.|
