Hall Table

I made this table a couple years ago as an attempt at bent lamination. This was extremely fun to build and one of few pieces I’ve sold that I wish I still had. I have all the forms and enough veneer to do another top so I will probably make another one sometime. The top is olive ash burl, black dyed maple banding with a mahogany border. The legs are oak tapered bent laminated and then ebonized using tree bark tea and vinegar with iron. http://www.popularwoodworking.com/techniques/ebonizing_wood
I did the top with a shellac french polish and the base is lacquer. I made the top first because I had the veneer and wanted to play with curves on this piece. I made a full scale drawing of the base by drawing different curves until I found what I thought looked pleasing to the eye, from this I could make the forms to do the bent lamination’s. The stretchers are oak with olive ash burl veneer, I thought it needed a little color with all that black on the base.

Beautiful concave curves, it’s so hard to get the right geometry to make it look right. You seem to have mastered it. Excellent craftsmanship.
