I made this pedestal table using Red Oak and Hard Maple. I painted the hard maple (it kills me to paint nice wood!) to match the high gloss sheen of my wife’s piano. It pulls the room together with the legs matching the trim in my house and the black gloss matching the piano.
The legs are an epoxied bent lamination. I made the form for the legs out of MDF and has two different radii so that the desired height and width were met. The lower circle support (painted black) is also a bent lamination of very thin Oak strips. The lower circle really pushed the limits of how tight a curve you can bend wood. After forming the curve I cut it into three equal pieces and joined it to the legs using very small mortise and tenon joints.
Hope you like it!
