I had seen a couple neat projects (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/315602 and http://lumberjocks.com/projects/322225)
using glass tubes so decided to try to design one.
I kept things simple and that left it looking a bit boxy.
I like their designs better than the one I deveoped (look more elegant). Still a start with a lesson learned in making the right size opening to hold the glass in place. It is walnut and hickory.

Thanks. I had to add some walnut to the top joint as but that worked to make it nice and tight.

Thanks. And to confess, I used my black exercise mat as the background for two of the pictures :)

Looks great!

A lot of small details there that pull it all together.

You have your exercise mat, I have tufts of freaking cat hair in every shot. I’ll trade you 8^)

Thanks! This mainly used pieces I had left from other projects (which is why I rarely toss anything, always seem to find a place in a future project!). Will look forward to seeing what project you design.
