I like those 60`s danish furnitures and I had opportunity to make small conference table… I added some nice details for it like that carved bowl. Finishing is again oilwax

Very Nice looking “retro” table, it looks quite light & delicate. Nice matching of the grain on the surfaces

I love the bowl and the tasty way the legs are nestled into the pot board. The coffee table in the background is to die for.

Very cool, very mid-century! Love it, but I also love the top of the coffee table in the back :)

Very very nice! How did you make the center circle? I really like your design and cleanliness of the table. As they say, less is more in this case.

Very nice, clean lines. I also really like the platter on the coffee table. Looks very elegant.

Fantastic table. I love Ash and you have done a great job on the staining and the finish. Very original with the bowl.

If I remember, dont you turn the whole piece on a lathe? Then cut the piece? Looks like you have produced a nice body of work. I looked at your gallery which has some wow pieces like this one.

Can you explain how the wood is “heat treated”.

Thanks
