This coffee table has been a long time coming and it moved into our living room today .
The design changed as time went by from a very different base and all that remains of the original base is the double arch design ,well that happens when the little lady does not approve .
Overall I feel it turned out well and it has that light and airy look that we where looking for .
Some of the details like adding the flared extensions to the legs and construction using kerf bending are experiments I just had to try and it all came together nicely and seems good and strong . Just a few more pic in the living room.

I love the way that turned out! Unique design, beautiful woods, great craftsmanship, and flawless finish. What’s not to love?

I like it !
I remember discussing the concept with you way back in the winter and I’ve really enjoyed the trip following the progress in your blog.
This is the big moment and the reveal does not disappoint.
You’ve done a fine job of creative design and the execution is very nice as well.
I think the little “socks” look great on the feet. They enhance the balance and make it seem more robust without adding visual weight …... clever.

Looks even better in the living room.

Socks? Leave it to Paul to come up with the perfect description!

I love it Kiefer. The only thing I would do different is to put it into my house instead of yours. Great unique design and wonderful craftsmanship. I was originally a little leary about the kerfed edges on the legs and support, but they actually turned out to be a subtile detail that enhances the design very nicely.

Super nice. Like to have one like that in my home. Have a plan something along this line that a dear friend on LJ sent me, just haven’t had the time to get started. Maybe some time in the future.
Thanks for sharing.
