The furniture for the Robinson House was the first furniture to be made in the Halls’ workshop, and represents the transition from the early Craftsman-influenced designs to the distinctive style of the Greene/Hall collaboration. There was also a great leap forward in the quality and attention to detail in the furniture. This table combines a base reminiscent of Japanese timber frame construction, and a top in the shape of a tsuba, a Japanese sword hilt-guard.
The Gamble House dining room table is similar in construction, and some of the details are more refined than in this example. In this table, the ebony pegs are round, and sit about 1/32 inch proud, while in the Gamble House table, square ebony pegs were used. The extension mechanisms are also similar, but the simple shapes of the tongues and grooves become sculptural curves in the later table.
Plans include detailed drawings printed on two 24″ X 36″ sheets.
