This project was inspired by Andrew Klein’s twisted table which I found on Youtube. The body is hard maple, the slats are sapele, and the pegs and feet are walnut. Lots of jigs and challenges to work through. I made a router pattern for the curved legs and had to make a few extra because the maple kept tearing out. A table saw jig nestled the curved legs and formed the parallel dados for the sapele inserts. Another jig layed-out the evolving pattern in the top which was cut out on a scroll saw and finished with a spindle sander where possible. I used a drill press and chisel to form the mortises. Glue-ups were done in multiple stages and the project was finished with thinned Arm-R-Seal.

A really unique piece!
Kind of hard to use without the glass top which creates depth to the table top.
That’s a lot of pieces to keep straight during assembly.

Interesting, a real eye catcher. Unique is an understatement, very nice.

Very cool. It looks very “mechanical” to be which I love.
