This table was designed originally in the early 1900’s. Kevin Rodel re-designed it, changing the top to a pinwheel top vs the original design. It was in Fine Woodworking last Fall or Winter.
I really enjoyed the design of it, and needed to make one after viewing it. Learning and practicing several new techniques. Reverse tapered legs, (many) 1/2 laps, splines (fastening 1/2 laps to legs), and the pinwheel top.
All made with quartersawn white oak. The top really pops when viewed at different angles. The entire peice was fumed for 3 hours, then several coats of Tried & True Varnish oil was applied. I put 3 on the base and am up to 6 coats on the top.
The center peice is tile from Motawi Tile in Michigan.
Was a fun peice to make. And it’s very interesting to look at.
