kaya tea table
I used a router table, a CNC router, a lathe and a tablesaw to construct this table in college.
the top was cut from a CNC router and the 3/8” groove for the skirt was done on the same machine. it’s actually incredibly boring to take all the fun out of your work, but it’s interesting i suppose. the legs are dovetailed into the turned center. this table is very strong for it’s size. i added a little flute detail to the pieces that hold the skirt together.
clear coated with a satin lacquer, it now sits beside our couch in the basement.
I believe the wood is kaya, khaya, something like that. it’s supposed to look like mahogany.
