|The New Yankee Workshop Online: The Butterfly Table|
Norm revisits Old Sturbridge Village and discovers an old table built by a colonial furniture maker more than 200 years ago. The ?Butterfly" table gets its name from the graceful drop leaves and the wing-like supports that hold the tabletop straight. This versatile table can also be used with the leaves dropped or even with just one lowered to allow placement next to a wall. The table is built of cherry, stained with a dark stain, and protected by a polyurethane finish.
