This is a six sided table that sits against a wall or under a window to be used as an accent piece. The inlays are purple heart and black epoxy resin. The body if build out of hickory. The finish is clear coats of lacquer. It is build as a “One Of A Kind” and will not be reproduced.

The build was done by first building an outer ring of segments and then a inter core was built of tri-angle pieces. The joinery is accomplished by glue and Kreg Pocket Hole screw technology.

Here is a link to a musical slide show showing its creation.

I love it! The whole thing is phenomenal. I really appreciate the production pictures.
For some reason, the top reminds me of a slice of watermelon!

Logan N Mariva 57 Digger Jacks Double DD,
My thanks to all of you Genltlemen, I appreciate all of your comments. Logan the customer told me that she thought it was a cloud or rainbow and the tear drop inlays were rain drops. But a watermellon also fits its looks. Diggerj Jacks, It is about 34 inches wide at the back and stands about 30 inches high as it fits under the big picture window of their home. Here is a link to the building of it is anyone wants to look. It is a sound slide show.

Very nice work, I love the design. Never seen a blue german-style hand plane like that… what is it?

Beautiful work! You didn’t show much detail of the base but it appears a very innovative design as well. But I do have one correction: that is a seven sided table :)

Hi Allen, Thank you for the nice commeny on the table. i do appreciate it very much. In answer to the question about the hand plane it is called “RAU” and itis a Swiss plane. It takes replaceable blades that are like a razor blade. They are two sided and expensive. i only use them when doing inlay type work as they are accurate and fast at removing material. The are very accurate and can be set to take fine ribbon shavings.

Hi gfadvm, Thank you for your comments and yes I guess you can call it a 7 sided table. Never thought of it at that as it is figured as having 12 sides and cut in half. Did not have room to post more photos of the bottom but yes it is multi-sided with a inlay between each segment. You can see the building of the bottom on the included slide show. Thanks again
