Another play with Nakashima ideas. This is a 30 year old pine on a Blue Atlas base. It has Blackwood bow ties and weighs a good 35kgs.

Table and chair are both very nice. How thick are those bowties? And did you bowtie the underside as well?

Bow ties ate only 3/8s thick gfadvm and I have only put them on the top side.
