Good day fellow LJs,

It’s been a while since I posted a project and I just wanted to share with you guys this new piece I designed. This table literally has a twist in it. The main post is band sawn and sculpted from molave. The base is ipil and so is the top which measures 32” in diameter. It will sit alone in a tea room with two of my chairs. I think the twisted leg is enough to make it the focal point of the room. All woods used here are reclaimed as with all my projects. Your questions and comments are most welcome.

Thanks for viewing,

-- Benji Reyes, Antipolo, Philippines,

Twisted as a politician but with a much better outcome. Looks great. Nice design.

When I see your work Benji, the same question comes to mind “how did he do that?”
Amazing work, the woods, the design, and the craftsmanship are all in balance.

My mind is in a whirl just wondering how you made the twist in that beautiful amazing table.

I like how you connected the foot surfaces with the pedestal surfaces. A nice even flow visually! Well done! Roman
