I like the beautiful frame and the curvy top , but they seem to clash in my eyes.
The frame is the real eye-catcher in these photos, but perhaps in real life (3D) it looks different.
Too much competition between perfection and rustic. JMHO and no offense intended : )
Your skills are remarkable though , right down to the finish !!

I am the exact opposite of Dusty56 (no offense to Dusty). I love the way you have the natural married to the fine art of woodworking. It’s like, “From this to This” so to speak. I would love to have this in my house!

This is very interesting as well as excellent craftsmanship. Well done!

Grizz you clean my shop and the table is yours.

doc, this is an adaption on a design I made 15 yrs + ago. In those days I really liked the floating top idea. I will see if i can scan some of those pieces to compare. Main difference is that those earlier pieces did not have the free form top. Just thought I would bring it back and maybe develop a few more pieces using this concept.

I like the floating top in tables. wondering if the base and the top overwhelm each other/ I like the strong base . It’s an interesting approach. will probably take some of these concepts and use them once I get my freekin shop in order! LOL!

I like how you are combining the live edge with a more traditional style base. I hope it sells well for you.

Beautiful work.

True,

And…mine is a safety concern. Really. I am currently building a large floor to ceiling rack. Went to the shop to actually work on a piece and found no floor or bench space.

The uprights act as support posts for the second floor joists as well. Almost complete.

Did the show go well for you?
