« Part 1: Metamorphosis to come. Part 2 of Thorsen Side Table Challenge #1 series Part 3: Getting closer! »

Well, I’m in the final stages of this challenge finally. As you can see this table did make a major change. I chose to make the legs appear to twist which helps give this table more of the Asian look. All joints are mortis and tenon, tongue and groove or a spine. The light color wood is the butternut with the darker being walnut. The last stage of metamorphosis is yet to come. Enjoy!

Very good Rog. I like it.

As Dennis would say those long pieces that are sticking out would disqualify it Sorry.

Karson, that’s nice of you to let Rog know BEFORE he goes to all the work of carving…

I agree with Dennis… those long sticky-outtie thingies disqualifies it… LOL

Which means if i enter this contest Imma have to do it with just enough time to keep Dennis from disqualifying mine

Although the legs add a nice “Twist”

Rog, it is looking great and the leg idea is just terrific! Man oh man, the curved idea is just fantastic. Can hardly wait to see the next surprise.

great idea, it looks like they totally twist, but they don’t really. Cool cool. Too bad you’re DQ’d.

Like Obi, I’m going to post at the last second, so nobody can count me out before the bell rings. ;)

And I was worried that yours was going to look exactly like mine, except different.

Cool legs. I thought I was drunk until I read your description. I know your final product will be beautiful. As is all of your work that I’ve seen.

Beautiful! I’ve been regretting that I won’t have time to create an entry for this competition, but now I don’t feel so bad about it because you just took every idea I had to put my own spin on the table to a level beyond where I envisioned it going.

Nice work!
