My Pirouette side tables look like dancers twirling about the room. These tables are very deceptive and look delicate, but are really quite stable and sturdy. The most recent set was made with walnut and I inlaid aluminum dancers slippers in the top. They are very fun to build and very eye catching.

They do look very delicate. In the images, the stretchers blend in and almost disappear. Really, really cool, Brian!

Those are really nice tables Brian. I have been kicking around a sofa back table with similar design intentions. Thanks for the pictures. Gives me a few ideas.

Very nice design. The floating top effect really fits right in with the leg shape.
