Saw the violet table from and thought it would be a good challenge to make.
If you are ever thinking of making this table, don’t. The legs take forever and a day! Leave it to Michael at castlewerks. He is a genius.
I love the way the table turned out and how it looks. I just don’t ever want to make another one again.
Make out of cherry and maple (amish wood).
Top is integrated into the legs.

Next time I will have to develop a better way on laminating the cherry together for the legs.

I don’t believe that my legs are as smooth of a transition from big to small as I would like. But they still look nice.

Onto the next challenge! Thanks lumberjocks for the cool inspiration.

Nice. I, too, have thought about attempting a take on “Violet”. I have been unable to find thick enough stock locally and have been contemplating laminating the legs too. How did you laminate your legs? What pointers would you give to developing a better method to laminate them? What was the thickness of your legs to start?

Nate, my laminating process is different as I make all my stock from rough cut lumber. When I was laminating I knew I wanted a 3/4” thick recess for the table top skirt to fit into. The thickness of the laminated lumber did not matter beyond that.
I need to develop a new method as the wood I use (Amish and reclaimed) is usually never straight, so lots of clamps for very few boards.
My laminated legs started off 4”x4”. Height is custom.
A better method for laminating the legs? Start off with straight lumber. Barn boards and old Amish wood are very difficult; but that is what I like to use as it is different and challenging.
Hope that helps some. :)
