This is is coffee table built from 6/4 Canadian Cherry, I designed it after seeing one on here but with a more alien look where I think this one has a more organic look.
I built a Sam Maloof pedestal table from a set of templaters and article from Wood magazine. I then quickly decided ” hey I like this table, I bet it would look great like this. So that was that I started designing off of those build techniques.
The ellipse was created with a mdf template we made then flush trimmed
3 Days later a table appeared, it was sanded to 500 then went over with a wool pad before the hand rubbed oil finish.
I really enjoyed designing and building this table, I hope to build many more.
The last picture is with a walnut and lace wood small sculpted rocking chair, I think they complement each other very nicely.
