« Part 1: The tapered legs Part 2 of Curved front hall table series no next part

To make the top six ribbon sapele offcuts from my wood supply shop were edge glued, planed, and joined. Then I used the template with a 3” diameter ring centered and carpet taped to my router base to trim the jigsawed oval shape to the final dimension. First I routed a classic ogee on the top edge and put a 3/8” round over on the back, my wife preferred the ogee to be on the down side, so the rounded side became the top!
I put Daleys ‘Benite’ to seal all the surfaces and then fastened the top with screws. Then put two coats of Daleys ‘Seafin’ wiping varnish on.
This completes the build for the table.

Thanks for looking, and your comments are welcome!

Incredible! What beautiful craftsmanship. The Sapele and Oak (?) pair perfectly. The design is gorgeous. Top quality design and build here.

You did an excellent job on that table. I’ve always liked bowfront designs but the bentwood always intimidated me.
