This was inspired by a pole screen from the Winterthur Museum.
The face of it is actually a mirror.
The fixed shelf is used to hold a candle and the light bounces off the mirror and reflects back into the room.

It is made from Sapele Mahogany with Wenge Feet.
The specialty hardware was procured from Londonerry Brasses.
The legs are attached to the center post using sliding dovetails.
The feet were shaped using the New Yankee Workshop method that was on the Tilt Top Table episode.

I have about 100 photos of the step-by-step process if you wanted to see anything specific on the construction.

Very nice. The feet and base came out real good. Looks like an antique.
