Make Queen Anne Handkerchief Table
The handkerchief table is an exquisite example of Queen Anne furniture from the early 1700’s. It is a small table, but is packed with both lovely, elegant form – shapely legs and nice proportions, and great function weather it is with the leaf up or down. It is also an entertaining build experience for cabinetmakers.
This class is perfect for woodworkers who are familiar with power and handtools and want to hone their skills in both furniture making in general and period furniture making.
