Another very creative piece you’ve created here Robert!

I can’t quite count all the legs… what, about 28-legs, or so? I could be completely off on that though.

This is really neat. How thick is the table top? What kind of sanding equiptment do you use?

Robert, very cool. I like different things like this, and you’ve done a great job on the finish. First impressions would be that it would be unstable and tend to rock. If I built one, it would be. I’m guessing you aleviated this potential problem by making sure the inner legs are slightly shorter. Do tell, and maybe some pics of the under side. Nice design.

Imagination and considerable skill demonstrated here – but where would you put it? Still, I really admire it.
