The Urchin table is a recent commission, it is only the second time I have made this design. This one measures 26”l x 22”w x 18”h and has a Buckeye burl top with a mound of ebonized Poplar that has 108 sharp Mahogany spikes protruding from it.

Beautiful! At first glance I had to wonder how you got all those legs to line up so it would sit level. I have enough trouble getting 4 legs the correct length. Then I saw there were flat bottom legs and pointy legs. Beautiful wood also!

Amazing! Would you explain your finishing process? How high is the sanding grit that you use? Tung oil, poly, or…? Truly fantastic work!
