This was an idea i had for many years. I like the way it turned out and will be making more of these for sure! Legs and body are douglass fir, table tops are red cedar.

Wild design. It looks like it’s stumbling. Perhaps it would look at home in a bar?

Yes it does look like its collapsing, if there was more than one in a bar you might be looking for a place to set yourself down..

Nice. What a very creative design. It looks good and stable-functional. Using the two contrasting woodgrains really accents and compliments the design work. Great work!

Very nice, I love the look. What are the dimensions and what size was the stock for the legs?

First piece I stopped to look at while going through the gallery. Would like to know something about the build? Looked at the webb page Greg posted. Great minds think alike? I like that you choose fir, and wonder if it was neccessity or choice? Will be interesting to see where you go from here.:)

The table top is 17” square, the bottom one is 12” square. It stands 28” high. The legs were made from 2×8 fir that I had sawn on my mill. I cut out the legs diagonally so the grain wouldn’t run perpendicular on the bend for strength.
