Following on from the CNX side table and using 40mm square is a tad simpler to workout angles then on round stock and the way the flat surfaces refract light really highlight the angles.
This was going to be just a concept piece making it smaller. IT turned out better than i exspected, it is 460mm tall.
It had to have a glass top, not going to hide all that awsome construction, this was my first use of glass on my furniture, it’s 10mm safety glass. I cut a template out of 4mm MDF and gave that to the glazer.
I did not know how secure it would be on rubber buttons but you pretty much have to puch the table over before the glass will come off but you can lift it straght off impresive.
I had to wait five weeks for the glass to turn up because i didnt order it till just before chistmas so it didnt make it into my exhibition.
It also looks awsome hanging on the wall too.

I like that design Geoff, and I think you are right about the square sections and light reflection. Well done.

Very nice, very nice indeed. Quite unusual, and very interesting.

Okay Geoffrey, I so envy people who can say “cutting the wood and the angles was straght forward”. That makes my eyes cross. It’s just not my gift. I;ll be talking about that more when I get around to posting pics of the Rogowski Stool I made…..

Stunning table! Always like combination of wood and glass. This one is art itself.
