    Stunning, Steve! That base really compliments the veneer work and lay susan in a wonderful way.

    More info

    Thanks for all the nice compliments. The circular inlay I used a vacuum jig from micro fence with a plunge router. Donít need it often but when I do itís about the only thing that will work. The base has three legs (?). Iím try to post a pic looking down on top of the base but not having much luck. Iím using my phone.
    I had to make I think 5 different patterns for the shaper for all the curved parts. The panels on the base are veneer as is the table and lazy susan tops and the bottom 4Ē of the base is wenge veneer with bent laminations for the curved parts. Finally got the pic to show.
    The curved faces of the legs are shop sawn 3/32 veneer and the center column is 7/8Ē solid. The legs taper from 4-3/4 at the face to 4 at the column.
    I got the solid stock from Hearne hardwoods and Jim Becker was nice enough to make a road trip to pick it out for me. Thanks so much Jim. Hope you donít mind me mentioning you.
    Nearly forgot. To attach top to base I used a circular piece of 1/4Ē steel plate with counter sunk holes. You can see the threaded inserts in the top of the base.

    That is not woodworking.... That is "Wood Art".

    The sound you all just heard was my jaw dropping and hitting the floor. That is an amazing table.
    Sharp solves all manner of problems.

    Steve, it was an honor to help you out at this end...a nice trip to the "candy store" (and as you know, I did not get out unscathed myself) and digging through pallets of amazing rosewood to find what you asked for was pleasurable. The end result with your craftsmanship is mind-boggling good!

    My wife said it is perfect. She has understated the majestic beauty. Thanks for sharing!
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!

    Do you want Jim to select it or select and pay for it?
