26”l x 21”w x 32”h This sculptural table captures a moment in both time and space. The wonderfully shaped Bubinga top is supported by three acrylic rods that are anchored into an ebonized Bubinga base. There are seventy Oak tentacles swirling from the top that create a complex visual composition.

Materials: Bubinga (top and base), Oak, Acrylic rod

I have absolutely no idea what I’m looking at, and … it’s so fantastically original that I can’t help but love it!

Very, very cool!

That is amother beautiful piece. I like the marine theme. What tools do you use to shape the tops and this case tentacles? A blog on this would really be great.

This is great!

I just finished a commission for a “Jellyfish Table” as well. It is really interesting to see how another woodworker interprets a similar idea in a totally different way. Beautifully done.

By the way, here’s mine:

i love the flow of your pieces, and this one is incredible. the shear amount of the tentacles really gives the piece a nice dense feel. nicely done!
