This is another table I just finished in the style of Victor Dinovi. The table is hung from a bracket that is mounted to the wall. This is one of the tables he made as a demo for the class he taught at MASW and he was kind enough to let me copy his patterns including the mirror that hangs above it but that isn’t finished just yet. If you haven’t ever seen his work you should google him, he’s a fantastic sculptural woodworker. Its not as easy as it looks getting those lines to flow just right, I have some learning to do to come even close to his caliber!!Thanks for looking.

Very pretty but man, it looks like a lot of sanding. Good for you, you’ve done it very well.

Cool stuff, what kind of sander or grinding or shaper did you use?

Thanks for all the nice comments. spunwood I used a 7’’ sander for most of the shaping then switched to a random orbit and finished with hand sanding. JoeyG I hope this pic gives you an Idea were to start, this pic was taken after it was shaped a little with the bandsaw
