How did you cut the 3/4" radius on the table skirts? Also, did you chamfer the skirts and then cut the radius?

My sister saw this and loved the design, so I made it for her. She has it at the top of the stairs, first thing you see. Thanks for design and color scheme she went for the same in the wood selection
I am in Toronto and have followed your plan as close as I can. However, I cannot find a 2 inch router bit with the bearing at the bottom (when mounted in my router in the router table) to do the legs. The plans are not very clear to me on this point. Could you clarify or suggest so I can continue with the project. Have been stuck at this stage of the build for a while now. Thanks.
AWESOME work Don! It's great to see someone from around home get published.
I made this table out of South American Mahogany, fitting the mortise and tenon between the legs and aprons were a real challenge (made the mortises on the legs "after" they were shaped), but it's all grist for sharpening my skills. Thanks for the plans, I just love the design.
Thanks for the comments everyone :)
I made a version of this beautiful table (square, not rectangular) for my sister in law in walnut and mahogany.
They were thrilled and kept looking at the top,like, how does it DO that? Very cool.
Thanks for the plans, Don. I made my version of this table and replaced a hulking gate-leg table that my wife detested. This light, airy version of a table is a good fit for my dining room. I'm contemplating a coffee table-sized version of this and experimenting with adding a lower shelf to hold magazines. My mortise-and-tenon work could use some help so that's my challenge for the next version.
excelente muy fino trabajo gracias
Great design! Love the curves. The floating top seems to counteract gravity! Awesome!
wish I had a piece of curly maple of that tightness for a full stock longrifle.
Pure simple elegance, b e a utiful. Love the curly maple, what is the top cherry, walnut, or ???

In this video Michael finishes the first of the three boxes. Gluing-up, planing, sanding and finishing bring a new piece of art to the world.

Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
