Set out to do this piece without any guideline other than what I thought might work for a design. I wanted to do something more sculptural rather than the usual stuff I build. Turned out that it was a very organic and difficult way of doing things- No two measurements are the same(didn’t use tape measure or stop blocks). No two curves are the same although they may be similar. Yet the whole table looks somewhat symmetric until you really look at it. It is hard to make mortise and tennons fit when you try to fit them to curves. Yes I know you are supposed to cut m&t joints before the curves. But I tried it this way to get a different look.
People that have seen it say they didn’t realize that until I pointed it out. I am sure that you all will see this right away but non wood workers might not care about those details as much.
It is a bloodwood top with tiger maple and hard maple legs.
