Someone already posted this yesterday. I can’t wrap my mind around how he cut the glass.

Gotta love the concept. Glass company can cut that for you, for a price.

That is super cool. Took me a moment to figure out what I was looking at. Thanks for sharing.

I wonder what type of wood that is. I like the combination of wood glass and steel.

You can cut curves in glass. You just need to be careful.

I have done some stained glass. It’s a lot of fun.

This is work by Greg Klassen, He calls it his river collection. I believe all of the slabs are maple and not all of the bases are metal, he also has done some with wood

The other tables can be viewed here
The round table with wooden legs and the log that looks like a pool is quite cool too.

not hard at all. Like with woodworking you make a template and you use a ring saw(think of a bandsaw for glass). My wife does stained glass and it’s cool to watch. It’s just another material.
