This is a new design – one of my “pet projects. It’s made to place in a corner and perhaps looks a little out of place without walls on two sides. Eventually, I may take a few shots of it in place as well.

It’s a variation of my Rafter Tail designs but with a lot more curves and angles. It was those curves and angles that presented me with a few issues during glue up. I used my CNC to make custom clamping cuals that conformed precisely to the odd shapes and accurately directed clamping pressure where needed.

Beautiful piece as usual Darrell! What did you use for finish on this one?

Thanks everyone.
Hopefully I will be posting a little more often in the coming future . My master plan is to take cut way back on the commissions ( I have only one on the books presently) and concentrate more on new designs,writing and teaching.

Another amazing piece, looks sky scraper like. Love the grain direction on the top.

truly unique and a type of corner table we rarely see. Very intriguing.

I had not thought of offering it as a class – if there is enough interest I might though

As always, I look forward to G&G projects coming out of Darrell’s workshop . . . This table piece is stunning! I have designs on my own drawing board to build a ‘wooden wheels’ clock to address the need! Maybe it will be my next clock project . . . Well done Darrell! Keep charging.
