I know it’s been along time since I last posted here. That’s because I have been extremely busy. But I just had some professional photos taken in preparation for our final graduation exhibition coming up in a little more than a month.

This table I call “Wrapped”. The top is Huon Pine and the frames are Peruvian Walnut. You can get the link to my online album at my other blog. I remembered that I never posted any good pictures of this project. The dovetails were hand cut, and the entire thing took me 8 hours to make and finish. The finish is a hand rubbed oil finish.

Thanks for looking.

stunning.
Yes, indeed, you definitely have an identifiable style. This is definitely a “Kaleo”.

another fine piece of workmanship.

Love the lines, the crispness of the piece and the contrast of colours

curious…..............how many hours in it?

This took table took 8 hours to make. I have this table along with a few others in mind for production. So to be able to make them fast means more money, I hope at least.

Another interesting piece, Kaleo. If the first one took 8 hours how long will the 25th one take? It is a very nice, modern looking table. I hope it sells for you.

Kaleo, the design is beautiful. But I have to ask…is it stable? Intuitively, it seems like it would tend to sway from side to side.

I love it too, wonderful piece and great photos (something I need to work on) How have you dealt with the wood movement of the top?

Charlie- It looks as though it would sway, but the frames are screwed into the top. Therefore the top of the table acts as it’s own stabilizing rail. The table is actually really solid, a lot more so than I imagined.

Damian- there is about a 2 mm gap on each side of the top. In between the top and the frames. The frames are screwed on and the screw heads sit in a slotted hole to allow the screws to move with the wood.

Thanks for all the kind words

so light and elegant, If these are as stable as they don’t appear to be, you’ll sell some to very happy customers.

Thanks scottb- I actually really like the fact that things don’t appear stable but are. So hopefully I got that desired point across in this piece. lol

Now that is one of the nicest tables i’ve seen for months, extremely nice design! 8 hours?? I could multiply that by ten and still not get something as good as that, I may steal/adapat the idea for a future sideboard if you don’t mind :)

Kaleo, Mate – a very graceful design and as Debbie states, it definitely has the Kaleo signature. Congratulations on completing your course. What next?
