Default Asian inspired hall table

Just completed this table based on a design from FWW a few months back. The completed piece is 48 wide by 13" deep by 32" high. I really liked the design and it was a new challenge with lots of curves and through mortise and tenon joinery.

it was a lot of fun building, but took a lot of time to work through the process. Fortunately FWW offered both plans as well as the video walk-through of the build process.

Mortises were cut with the 1400 router and the tenons cut on the bandsaw. Trion jig saw helped with the curves. Legs have curves and tapers on three sides, done on the router table and then the joiner and planer. Lots of hand plane and scraper work and the Festool 150/3 and RS400 sanders were key to some of the final finishing.

Wood is walnut. Finish is oil and varnish mix.

Questions or feedback welcome -

That's just beautiful, Neil! Very graceful; the color and workmanship are wonderful. It would look great in my house...

Outstanding.

It is very close to a design in a book I have.The whole floating top thing calls to me. I hope to build a version of the one in my book in the near future. I plan to use Maple and Wenge.

Very nice work, Neil.

I also think it would be perfect for Peter's house.

Maybe he would pay the shipping?

Really clean execution... nice!

I remember reading that article. I think it was about floating tops.

I'm working on a bench with plans from FWW. The plans and video were very well done.

Again, nice job.

It would be nice in Peter's house - if it were cherry. I think it's safe where it is, Neil!
