I call the miter laminate technology “Geo- Matrix” Geometric + Matrix (Matrix is something evolving or developing)
I go to the third generation.

This table is a wooden table cloth. The ends are sculpted like a cloth would do when is hanging from a table.
I used 7 different types of wood, including: Wenge, figure maple, Hlooy, flame birch, mahogay, purple heart and cherry.

Wow, Not vernier? That’s the most impressive laminate I think I’ve ever seen. You’ve inspired me…. I’m going to save my small scraps for a while and make some laminate gunstock blanks from small pieces to see how they look carved into a gunstock. No pattern, just random blocks will be enough of a challenge the first time. I can’t imagine what 3 pieces of your table top glued into a 3” wide laminate, then carved so the curved surfaces show.

You have a very good eye and sense of wood, as well as the craftsmanship to make accurate cuts and joints.
As a self taught woodworker, you have progressed far beyond what I will ever attempt. Thank you for
sharing your ability and projects.

Beautifully designed and executed! I especially like the “no iron” table cloth.

Welcome to lumberjocks.
Fantastic work.
Not many people here doing second, let alone third generation mitered laminates.
I take it that you have read Clarence Rannefeld’s book?
