This was a project at school (woodschool.org) that required curved and veneered parts. The legs are bent laminations, tapered two ways. I resawed each lamination, 5 in total, from riftsawn walnut, then tapered each lamination before gluing them back together (last photo).

Both the table top and the bottom tray are veneered with shop sawn veneers. The top is pretty straightforward, but the bottom tray is curved with the corners pulled up a bit more than the sides. This was done with 9 veneers in the vacuum bag over the inverse form of the tray.

The photo shows the first round where I veneered 7 layers, each perpendicular to the next over the form in the back of the photo. I built the tray in two rounds so that I could clean up the edges, hide the veneer layers with lipping and the final round overlaid the top and bottom fully with veneer.

The finish was multiple coats of Deft Oil with the last two coats burnished with a grey scotch bright pad.

Very nice piece and craftsmanship. The legs really stand out to me with their unique shape and delicate look of bent wood and curves. Tres cool.
