Tall Kitchen Table/Workspace with Recycled Marble

Postby paul@paulkirchnerstudios.com » Fri May 04, 2012 3:15 pm

This doesn't really have much going on with it as the monies involved didn't warrant much more. Curves on the legs and the double arch come from hallucinations/inspirations during my last trip to the Andalucian area in Spain...and the resultant reading of Owen Jones seminal mid 1800's book "The Grammar of Ornament"

Paul,

I didn't think there was anything that hasn't been done in a 4 legged table design- until I saw your table! The legs have a very original and pleasing shape and the bowed stretchers are very nice too, good work. How did you shape the legs?

Thanks,
Rutager

Rutager,
Thanks a lot. The top portion of the legs were worked with chisels and Iwasaki rasps and then the bandsaw came into play for the long straightaways.
And again, thanks for the compliments.
