Nakashima Inspired Dining Table

Here’s a recent homage I made to the master Nakashima. All Japanese joinery on the bottom with no screws just glued joints. The wood is western maple, with the bottom pieces coming from a lot of curly/spalted western maple. The legs came from a set of bookmatched slabs I had that had cracked down the middle, so I just cut them down to leg size and used them here. Let me know what you think!

Looks like a fun build. Nothing more satisfying than wood on wood joinery, I’d say!

Some excellent fine joinery contrasted with live edges. It looks fantastic!

Very cool! I love the design!. Is the top actually flat? The pictures make it look a bit concave?

Nakashima would be pleased with your esotericism.
Nice job on the joinery.

Wow! If you ever offer a joinery class I’m in!
