Hall Table "inspired"

This was a piece I made after a little collaboration with my class.
They all made a similar hall table after we had agreed on proportions and style.
It is made from Radiata pine. Stained blond and dark walnut.
It won me first place at the National wood skills held in Kawerau NZ in 2010.

Nicely done, Andy and congratulations on your win! I’ll bet they loved that it was made of Radiata!

Congrats to you mate, would really like to see more pic of this beauty though. Hard for us to really enjoy your craftsmanship! Look great though from the one pic.

Beautiful! How did you cut the drawer front out of the front piece of the table?

The whole front curve is vacuum pressed in one hit. The drawer section is cut out after the glue has set. The sections that are not part of the drawer are glued back together. The drawer front is left out. It is in my opinion, too hard to try cut out the drawer later.
Thanks for your comments. Will put a few other views on later. Quite a new challenge for me converting large files to one that lumberjocks can handle.

Hi Andy
Congrats on the win! That’s an interesting table.
I couldn’t tell from the photo that the front was curved, so am hanging out for some more photos.
Cheers

Just found a rough picture that shows the curve a wee bit better. Oh well….will take a better shot later with more detail etc.

From that angle it looks like a casket on a stand! Interesting detailing.
