This is my design of a dining table using bentwood and veneer . I designed it after seeing women and men dancing in Acapulco. I call it immigration reform. . I made three curved forms and veneer them using quilted walnut. Its a testament to perseverance because it was one of the hardest pieces I ever made. All this and Heaven too.

Too funny, your motivation was seeing dancers. I saw the thumbnail pic before coming in, and I thought gee looks like dancers. Congrats on taking your dream, and making it this reality.

Thanks for posting.

Looks to me like it’s a dado cut on one piece, and the other fits into it, really basic, and that is beautiful. The splayed leg pieces touch a lot of area, which would increase it’s stability.

My question is how is it attached to the top? Or just sitting on it?

Therea, they stay together by notching each time they touch. Each figure is half notched for a strong joint. The top is the stabilizer It just lays flat holding all the notches in tension.

I have done some of this. Mine was simpler and of Ash and or Oak Curved Stair cases and another was a Chair.. This is lovely work. But this is so very nice.

Have your say...
