This customer wanted a coffee table with a different look. Square was out for her. So I designed and built this freeform coffee table using bent form lamination and formed veneer work. It is made from maple with a bubinga inlay on the top.

Great Job! That inlay must have been tough. It kinda reminds me of a bean.

Damnit that looks great! My next project is gonna be a coffee table, but i can’t settle on a design. I’ve been leaning toward a live edge piece, but I really like this.

Great looking table, I love the lines on this and the fact it’s not square. Congrats!
