Night Tables

Wood End Table

Created by Jeffrey Hills
this item has not yet been reviewed  
The materials in this piece are quarter sawn Walnut, Brazilian Cherry, Padauk and Tiger Maple. Night Stands have two components, an upper box and a lower leg section. The upper box is constructed of quarter-sawn Walnut and its mated drawer in Tiger Maple and Brazilian Cherry. The legs are constructed of Walnut with Padauk sandwiched in the middle, rising into an arc of Padauk with Walnut upper and lower cross members. The square buttons are made of Wenge. The case is matched grain Walnut with all hand cut Dove Tails on the case and drawers. It was essential for the appearance as well as the operation of the drawer that this joint came together precisely square and true for its entire length. The drawer sides are a fixed to the front with zero entry dovetails.

The dynamics of wood movement have been accounted for and should not impede the slide of the drawer. Behind the drawer is a bow of wood, which acts as the drawer stop. Each rear side of the drawer has a felt tip. Each handle was hand carved and sanded and is joined to the drawer with two 1/8th inch dowels and glue. The legs are each joined by the arch placed in the leg dado. The front and back components are joined by mortise & tenon joinery.

The upper box supports are screwed in and then a square is chiseled and a square peg is fashioned. Upper and lower components are joined by four dowels and glue in the center third only, in order to allow for seasonal movement.

The Night Stands are finished in five coats of Tung Oil and the sides of the drawers are finished in Tung Oil and Wax.

Care Instructions:
A high quality furniture oil with UV protection is recommended for the base and top periodically.

About this Artist

Jeffrey Hills

"When I build tables, I often think of the people who will sit around them and fill the room with joy and laughter. From my windows of consciousness, to my energy and passion to build in balance with nature's gift something of utility, to creating an object of lasting beauty, that is my gift and my joy. "

Jeffrey Hills will often be inspired for a project by a beautiful piece of wood. First he sees the wood and then seeks to bring out the life that the wood holds and represents. His goal is to give the wood a future as a well-crafted and engineered piece of furniture.

In all of his work, Hills uses precise joinery, clean lines, and attention to species selection and grain management. All joinery is done by hand and tool. Finishes are hand rubbed oils, varnishes, and wax.

Hills is primarily a self-taught woodworker and furniture designer, with 50 years of experience. He has studied with Robert Meadow of The Lutherie the art and techniques of Japanese woodworking. All of Hills' hand tools are Japanese in design and made by master forgers. Jeffrey Hills has been designated as a Taos "Living Master."
