Walnut Top Dining Table with "Stealth" Style Base

I was asked to make this table (4th pic) except with a wood base and smaller top.
It, as you can imagine, had a lot of challenges with all the different angles.  I accept the challenge...
Keeping the top and bottom flat and level in relation to the angled sides was quite the fun. Every piece was different.
I used birch ply material and veneered the ends that showed the plywood edges.
It's stained black with a precat lacquer finish.
The top was finished with conversion varnish.

The top is approx. 1 1/2" Thick.


Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

Walnut is a favorite and so WOW for this table.  The base works great with the top.  
Wow! That's a fantastic table. I can only imagine the headaches that base caused. 
Goodlooking table and the base really adds.   Nicely done.

love it bent. that base would have made me nuts with all the angles. not a problem for a master woodworker though.

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.

I remember this one and thinking "Glad I'm not doing it"

It turned out fantastic!

Great table, base is nice and I can see where that would cause some issues in the build. The walnut goes well with the base. Well done.

Nice design and well executed

Came out great, looks amazing ....and I am pretty sure the angles on the base keep it from showing up on radar.
