« Part 2: Scalloped Front Demilune Part 3 of Demilune table tops series Part 4: Crotch Mahogany Demilune Table »

Another Demilune Table.

This one has a crotch Mahogany Top, with solid Mahogany legs. The legs have a little detail, just to spice them up a bit. I used a jig to cut the cove in the leg bottoms, and to cut dado’s in for a bead molding. While a dado blade in the table saw would work for the dado’s, it wouldn’t do the cove. So, I used a simple jig to do both.

I used 2 layers of 3/8” bendy board for the apron, glued up in the vacuum bag, and unibond 800 Ures Resin glue. It’s a rigid glue, which will hold the shape of the curve quite well.

That’s what I used to glue the veneer to the top as well, since it doesn’t permit any movement.

I’ll post some pictures when the table is complete.

No one could ever “TOP” that tabletop.

Very nice Lee.

Wow Lee, that top really steals the show. Beautiful. And I like the leg detail you are showing. That’s going to be a classy show piece.

Great job: did you put a bullnose on the inserted pieces that you put in the legs.

Second question. How many patterns do you have for the pie shaped pieces. This table is a 6/12 and I was wondering how many different combinations might be necessary.

Looking ood. Hope to get over to see you this year. It’s been too long.

The wood in that top is outstanding. I can see this is going to be another beautiful piece from the master craftsman. Looking forward to seeing the finished piece. Great blog as always. Thanks for posting.

God Bless
