Mike Dombrowsky’s table: Celebrating the ten year anniversary of the Eliot House Woodworking Program

Mike Dombrowsky spent two semesters with us at the Eliot Woodshop. After contemplating a few project alternatives he zoomed in on making a shaker influenced end table, but with a twist. Mike set to break the symmetry of the drawer facade and, in a truly virtuous way, to deconstruct it by making the handle in the front stand out. 

Here is the sketch of the drawer front. Notice the inset behind the handle.

Mike chose to shape the handle from wenge while the rest of the table was made from pine, popular and mahogany. 

Here are a few pictures:
