Replicating 26" Fortuna Gallery
By Ricky Diggs

Hello MMDers.  Thanks for all the responses I got from my last project,
"Replicating Capital Cuff Box Tables".  I started out at MMD just
looking for photos of an original table style B, so I could reproduce
one table for Larry Greenfield (I'm delivering his Tuesday).  It ended
up with me replicating one for Bill Wineburgh, one for Rick Cooley 
(I shipped those two off this week).  Also Jere Ryder ordered four:
two style B and two style C.

In this first production I made one (1) extra style B in oak, that is
ready to be shipped if anybody is in need of one.  As I get started on
Jere's order I will also produce one (1) extra style C in oak.

Jere Ryder also commissioned me to replicate a 26" Fortuna Gallery,
style #370.  He also provided me with a scale drawing from an original
gallery.  (Jere was also responsible for tracking down the original
style B and C and Cuff Box tables and supplying me with detailed
drawings and measurements.)

If there is anybody out there in MMD-land who is in need of a 26"
Fortuna Gallery give me a call.  The price will be $1725 unfinished,
plus shipping.

Thank you so much, MMDers, for allowing me to "bend your ears!"
