The end of year piece for the first year of my degree.
The table design is based on the architecture of bridges.
The legs are made from laminated beech which is then shaped with a spokeshave to produce a taper that disappears as the legs approach the crossing.
The small walnut stringing diamond (pic 4) is under the table and is there to cover a slip i made with the saw while cutting the halving joint.
The top is removable and is connected with some strange lamello locking biscuits (i don’t know what they’re called but the machine that cuts the slots (a lemello zeta) costs over a grand (British pounds))
All the beech is form the new forest, and at least half of it went up the extraction making the laminates for the legs. I’ve no idea where the walnut is from, its there to pick out the lines of the piece and make it look pretty.
