Can you describe the process you used to sculpt the base? This is a really interesting piece!

The base of this table is stack laminated of five pieces of 16/4” walnut. Each piece is cutout on the bandsaw proir to glueing and then shaped and refined with grinders, sanders, and hand tools. The finish is sprayed lacquer. This piece sold and it weighed in at 75 lbs with packaging for shipping.
