Small Round Table

I had in mind a small project, something big enough to be taken seriously but small enough to give as a gift--a delicate object with delicate veneer on the top and delicate moldings on the base. Hereís what I came up with.



Thereís nothing orthographic about a little round table with 3 legs. I didnít trust how I saw this in my minds eye from the drawings, and I thought it might come out all wrong; so I started with old scraps of this and that--some rift white oak veneer and lumber and a bit of Indian rosewood--just because they werenít big enough to do much else with. I thought they might work together.
The veneer pattern on the top just uses a single curved line, an arc of a 4Ē radius circle. I am happy with both the execution and the visual effect.



It was a lot of work to make this little drawer that might hold a pack of cigarettes, a deck of cards, and a couple of coasters. Mainly, itís fun to open and close.



Curved work takes a stack of jigs. The left stack is for the top, and the right stack is for the base. The plan from here is to make a pair with left hand/right hand spirals on the tops. Iíve found some Honduras mahogany to use in place of the white oak. Looking at some dark Indian laurel veneer to go with it.



Thanks for looking.

Great work and imagination put to use! Nice choice of contrasting veneers on the top.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Great work John! If that's all your idea, you have a good eye for design. You clearly have the build skills.

Thanks for posting.
