« Part 48: Three Pillars of Design - Part 3 Proportion Part 49 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 50: Modern Shaker Table - Making the Tapered Legs »

Deviating from more traditional pieces, I was asked to design and build a table with more modern styling. I started the design process by evaluating the constraints and developing some ideas in my sketchbook before moving on to a more refined design in SKetchup. You can take a look at the latest post on my blog for more details. Thanks for reading!
