My latest pet project and hopefully the 1st of many more pet projects to come. Going forward, I plan on shifting more towards teaching, writing, videos, and design work (building what I want to build and not what someone else wants me to build)
I really was not aware of cocktail tables before this. I originally drew this much lower – but it just didn’t work. So I did a google image search for tall tables. The height of a cocktail table was perfect.
The top is all solid wood cut out on my CNC machine. The splines are, by necessity, cut out on the CNC as well.
To accommodate wood movement – the outer portions of the top “floats” – only the inner 4” of spline is glued.
