Had a customer that wanted a pedestal table for there breakfast area and found a picture of one on the web they liked. I had not done one of this style before and thought it would be a challenging but doable project. Once I broke down the different parts into individual projects it was not to difficult. The bottom table skirt I thought I would build a jig, resaw some walnut into long thin strips to make a laminate skirt, but at the last minute decided it was to time consuming and decided on a ring made of small segments. Looks ok I think.
What was difficult was the “aging” of the table the customer wanted. Here I had made a table that came together well with sharp crisp edges and profiles, and now I had to go after the table with sand paper, screw drivers, hammers, nails.. and “age” the table. Kind of like jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. Well what ever the customer wants, right !?? :-)
