Hi All,

I built this table out of yelllowheart and purpleheart and it now resides in the hallway of our home.
Yes it’s a little bit different but then, so am I. It’s 11 1/2” wide X 42” long and finished with three coats of oil based poly.

All the best

Nothing wrong with being different.

Some people who are different come up with neat clocks for their friends.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

what a great idea for the angled legs
Looking at the clocks that you post, I’m assuming that this style is throughout your house! It “fits”.
I will soon be able to look at a project and say, “that must be a “Gord””.

And that’s what makes it a beautiful piece. Very interesting and refreshing style and nice finition.

Gord -

I like “different”. This is a breath of fresh air. I like the wood choices and the sleek modern design. Well done!

Isn’t this what they used to call Avant Garde? Another inspired design. Good work, Gord.

Another interesting piece, Gord. Really quite an eye catcher!

Gord. A great design. I first thought that the upper supports were different sizes and then I noticed that they were angled. A great design

Great design and execution. I am not always a fan of mixing wood species just for the sake of doing so however, in your piece I think that the mix of woods really sets off the design element of the repeated angled legs. Very nice!

Excellent design! Could we see more of how you connected the top and bottom to the legs? I love what purpleheart does after it ages a bit!

Gord – you have it – fine woodworking and terrific design skills. I can do the woodwork, but feel that I fall way short when it comes to design.

I like the way the natural colors of the wood work with the Art Deco look of the piece. Very nice work!

Stunning! Little risk of someone failing to notice this in your home…...unless all your furniture is your design. :-)
Very nice workmanship!
