This three legged table has been on my back burner for several months – it’s a continuation of my rafter tail series.
Often the challenge with odd angles is achieving even clamping pressure – it usually involves a lot of extra clamps to bring things back in line and eliminate gaps – with my new CNC machine, I made clamping cauls that allowed for precise even clamping – very little fussing and no gaps between the legs and rails.
The ends of the rafter tails took a little extra hand work to produce the angled ends.
Along with the fused glass top – I made a wood top from spalted ohai

it turned out grand, i like the option of two tops, both changing the look , the cnc sure does help with many items, not just parts for the piece, but also parts for jigs…

What are those bits that go beyond the table top for? Are they for extensions?

They are the rafter tails – they attach to the base and cradle the top

Fits in great with the other pieces from the rafter tail series. I like how you draw from architecture for furniture design. The wood top version looks amazing.

This is very nice Darrell! I have been thinking about triangles in woodworking and then this shows up. I was actually thinking about triangle boxes or pyramids. I personally like the wood top but some soft illumination under the glass top would look elegant too. Great piece!
