This table had a veneered top with a 6” solid wood band. The ball in the pedestal was 16” in dia. with a hollow center. The ball is made up of 30 individual pieces, apple slices. A sled was made to mill the the lumber for the ball through the planer creating a wedge shape, they were then cut to length and band sawn into a half circle. The beading was done on the router table using a wedged plateform to hold the piece at 90 to the bit. Then all the pieces were biscuted and glued up to from the ball. The feet were turned on the lathe and the beaded on the Legacy.
The top is 72” in dia.
Thanks for looking!
