Merry Christmas and Happy Solstice and Happy New Year!!!

This is my second table of this style, if anything just to see how it feels to repeat a large scale project. I worked on this, on the side, for over a year. It is not very often I get to make something that I then get to sell without a cient or patron in mindl. I got to work on this in my own time frame in the ways I wanted without the stress of deadlines and client appreciation.

Bloodwood interior, reconstituted ebony (as a “green” alternative) exterior. Macassar ebony in-lay and anthers (with fiddleback maple and walnut filaments) and all of steam bent and laminated veneers of poplar and black walnut. I completely documented this project with over 500 photos. LOL.

It stands 29.5 inches tall and 36” across the top…. 28 on the bottom.. with a 48” (x.5 thick) glass top.

A few more pictures of details:

Way to go my friend ! Gorgeous piece of truly “art furniture” ! The design is elegant and the execution appears masterful ! VERY impressive indeed! I always did speculative pieces and the hell with commissions ! (although I took them on occasion….they had to be something allowing a lot of ‘interpretation’ don’t get wealthy with that approach, but it feels good doesn’t it ! )...
