Please help me NAME this table!!! ...what does it make you think of when you see it? Look over some of my other projects to see how I tend to name my furniture pieces. Thanks!
...Update: Thanks Dave Bardin for the name suggestion!
This hall table is made from salvaged California Claro Walnut. The top features a natural edge along the front and large cracks from both sides, repaired with Macassar Ebony “butterflies.”
Originally the legs were going to be straight (at 15 degree angles) but I really wanted some curves. My first thought was to slice them into thin pieces and cold mold them on a form like I have many times before (Jellyfish and Arch Tables).
But then I remembered a trick I saw in Fine Woodworking magazine one time. They cut a single curve through the piece and flip-flopped the two pieces (put the bottom piece on top of the other) to made one larger curved board. Here is a link to the article, in FW issue #215.
58” long, 10” deep, and 37” tall. Finished with sprayed conversion varnish.
