This floating top sofa table was inspired by lots2learn – thanks. The frame is walnut, the tops are pommeli sapele with quilted maple surround on the top and normal maple on the bottom. I put a one inch curve on the sides of the top and shelf. I really like the way the bottom shelf appears to float entirely within the frame. I left off stiles on the lower ends of the frame so that the bottom shelf would really seem to be suspended. Love the affect of negative space under the surfaces. Any and all comments welcome.
Per Tennwood’s request, here is a photo of the support for the top.
