So called because I think it looks like a minimalist table perched on molten lava.
Size : (top) 113mm square x 52mm high (pedestal base) 133mm square x 5mm high
Materials : Padauk, Ebony, Holly and Birch Ply
Glues : PVA, Spray Contact and CA
Finish : Spray Acrylic (satin finish)
At 3.5mm thick the top was too fragile so a 1.5mm Birch Ply liner was used (pic’ 4). Otherwise its solid wood construction. With a foam inner base liner and baise on the very bottom. I’ve experimented a little with glues and finishes this time. The latter because of the Padauk bleed problem with light woods.
Pic 6 shows the board it was made from.
The links, above, take you to blogs describing the techniques involved in construction.
It is of the Inverted World/ ‘A’ String family of designs
This shows the CAD model I made before starting construction. Fairly close I think you’ll agree.
