This is a conference table that I designed and made. It is made of walnut with a maple inlay. The outside edge is a knife edge that I used various jigs to shape through the planer, tapering it on the radius. It was really fun to make.

Ed Smith, a colleague of mine, deserves honorable mention for contributing to the design and construction of the legs. The legs are on a compound radius with a reverse taper.

The table is gorgeous. Now you need to design and build some chairs that are worthy of the table!

Thanks for posting.

That really has the WOW factor. Elegant, classy, soooo well done! It’d be interesting to see the chairs they put with it.
