This is a small side table. The top is made from 1”Red Oak and has a scalloped edge instead of being square. The base is also Red Oak with a red Mahogany stain. The 6” spiral is made from Ash, The ribbon is painted with midnight copper and the edges of the ribbon are painted gold. The top is !” x 15” x 20 1/2”. It stands 25 1/2” tall. This was a fun project. When the lacquer drys I will sand and buff it smooth. Hope you guys like it.

-- Have a great day.

I did the spiral on the Legacy 1500 mill. Look it up on you tube they have a bunch of videos on it.

I do lots of sprials, but not on this big of a scale! Even without the 2 colors it would have been quite eye catching. Very interesting

I too, have a Legacy mill, the 1500EX.
Making spirals is such fun (and a lot of work).
When I first glanced at the photo I thought you had somehow intertwined different wood species. The paint is great stuff.
I have used paint to simulate mineral stones in wood finger rings I make.

Nice work.
Thanks for sharing.
