This table is made of Walnut. It was built using bent lamination for the curved front, mortise tenons, and rabbets. This was my first attempt at bent lamination. I was stuck half way through the build when I realized the curved front didn’t have square angles to cut the joinery and it couldn’t safely be run through my machinery. For the first time I had to hand cut my joinery. I learned a lot from this build and it gave me an excuse to buy some hand tools I have been wanting.

Great results on this table… I like the way you transferred the profile of the top piece down to the shelf… very nice build..

Nice table! How did you attach the bottom shelf to the legs?

Thanks,

Thanks guys. I finished it with General Finishes seal-a-cell and arm-r-seal. The bottom shelf fits into rabbets that are the thickness of the shelf with some dowels for additional support and alignment help.

Don’t you love it when the project “forces” us to use hand tools! Great design, beautifully executed.
