Calling all woodworkers!! OK, now that I have your most appreciated attention, I have yet another quick question for this fine group of woodworkers.
I’ve just acquired a few gorgeous, very thick, wide slabs of cherry. My intentions are to make at least one coffee table with one of those slabs. (Maybe even a dual-level coffee table.) I’m looking for ideas for the base. I really don’t need plans…but rather maybe some links to photos. I’ve searched the web fairly extensively, and have yet to see anything that would fit the bill.
Here’s what I’d like to see:
Maybe something that late woodworking master Sam Maloof would have drawn up. I’m looking to push my woodworking to the next level, and would like to try something a bit more difficult than all of the “straight-lined” projects I’ve made for years.
What I’m not looking for:
Your typical four legs or two stumps of a tree. :)
I do have access to many, many years worth of woodworking magazines, but thought I’d give a shout out to those of you who just might have some clever ideas for me.
Maybe something on these lines.
Thanks so much everyone, Gramps.
