This project had it’s challenges. The star base was all designed on sketch up before any cutting was done. The scalloped face was cut on the legacy mill with an 1 1/2” core box bit.

-- Have a great day.

Even with a legacy mill, that scalloped face had to take a lot of time whether you cut each notch individually,
or cut long strips of molding and edge glued them together. The end result is great, thank you for sharing.

That is a great and very modern design. I really like it. Where is the table going to go? I would make an impressive statement in an entrance hall.

Thank you all for your comments. The table base is attached to the wall with screws.

The scallops were made from MDF so I could bend it.

The silver paint is silver powder mixed with clear.

-- Have a great day.

Great Job!

You can buy ultra light MDF, It is much lighter than regular MDF and it bends much easier.

-- Have a great day.

Holy cow, Batman! That is a spectacular execution of a very cool design! I don’t know if I believe it was done by a mere mortal woodworker… It looks so perfect and so unique,too. Kudos to you on your accomplishment.
