Thanks to Bill for permission to post his table online (Private kinda guy). I made the table for a customer and fellow tool junkie. I had a lot of requests from those close to me on here to get these pictures posted and needed to wait for the customer to decide wether he was ok with the pictures being posted. The top is a slab of Bubinga that originally was 2” thick by approx 46” wide by 14’ long. The final top ended up at right around 88” long and the other half of the slab is currently in storage (I’ll either end up making something else out of it or sell it whichever comes first) the base is a mix of Tiger Maple (Curly if you will) and bubinga. The table was made with all hand tools and contains ZERO hardware all joinery (sorry i don’t like screws) and is designed to be broken down to be moved (kinda needed the whole thing weighs in at around 600 lbs ish). The sculpting was done with a combination of planes, a cigar shave, surforms, and card scrapers. Thanks for taking a peek, any questions just ask. And for those out there that buy tools from me THIS is why i haven’t been super chatty lately, I’ll be back in old tool mode in about a week and you can start asking for stuff again. Thanks for the patience for the photo upload to for the guys out there that were asking and kept putting off.
