Default Another Nara Table

Well, I had a client come to look at the Nara Table I built previously. They decided they wanted one with a natural oil finish.
So, off I went to choose a few more boards from that small stack of Nara at my wood dealer.

This is what they got. It was delivered yesterday, I promised they would get it before Christmas.

Wow, Okamisan! Beautiful. I'm betting that the finishing of the live edge took almost as much time as the rest of the table top. The sinuous curves of the table edge are very sensuous. It probably feels really nice under the fingers.

As always: wonderful work!

Well done, I just want to run my hand along that edge!

Questions,,,,

Did you use a hidden cleat when you glued up the three boards?

Did you use a two part urethane adhesive for the glue up or a yellow glue?

Do you have a picture of the undercarriage?

Do you use GRK's (or ???) to facilitate the attachment of the support system to the tabletop?

and,,,,,,,,
Do you typically oversee your deliveries and placement to your clients location?

thanx

Those edges are just so appealing, if I were a guest at their table I would sit there running my hands back & forth along the edge.

Roger,
I just glued the boards using tightbond III
To glue the boards together, and get around the live edge, I made a few quick clamping blocks


After that the top went outside for work on the live edge..it's a messy job grinding the rough edges


Back inside. I used my little Metabo for sanding the live edges. I love this sander, it's great for these kinds of job and I believe You have one or two of them yourself Roger


The Mirka doing a fine job


The top is attached to the base via wooden buttons. I like my button chunky


I do free delivery on all furniture within the prefecture I'm based at. I oversee all of those deliveries.
I employ the services of a furniture delivery company for the long distance clients, although I have personally delivered special orders across the country myself, all the way up to Tokyo (I'm based in Kyushu).

Cool, Okami. How do you maneuver that giant table all by yourself? I don't think I'd be able to lift it, or flip it.

Even the base is very appealing & compliments the top very well.
