The New Yankee Workshop Online: Tap Table

Norm visits historic Portsmouth, New Hampshire to track down a table he wants to build on The New Yankee Workshop. At the famed Antiques Gallery of Ronald Bourgeault, he finds exactly what he's looking for; a table referred to as a "tap" table (short for tap-room). With its turned maple legs and round pine top, this historic specimen might well have served tavern guests in the mid-18th century. This particular "tap" table, with dimensions of 28" round and 26" tall, has splayed legs that connect with a Queen Anne style apron, supporting a well-worn top. Norm hopes to reproduce his version of this useful table right down to the original painted patina.
