This coffee table base system is rather large, the top is elliptical shaped at 60” x 80”. Right now the base weights around 450 pounds, then when done carving should weight about 250 pounds.
This Art Nouveau base took me a full ten hour day to draw in my cut lines by scaling off the 1/4” clay model. So now it’s fun time using grinders that have chain saw cutters and King Arthur Holey Galahad coarse grinding discs.
I’m setting up a plastic tarp around one of the benches that I’ll be grinding on to save the guys in the shop from the wood storm. On the last picture I’m showing the practice piece which will be similar to the real carved base. Thanks for looking LJ’s
