Woodworker: Seth KiedaischWhen a client asked Kiedaisch to design a table with “those butterfly things and that ragged edge,” he decided to have some fun. Instead of the typical slab-top table with traditional butterfly keys and an angular base, he built a very organic, curved base out of walnut. He did a lot of lumberyard sleuthing to find the bird’s-eye maple slab top, and he played with the size and shape of the keys, curving them to mirror the base. Finished with oil and wax, the table is 20 in. deep by 50 in. wide by 15 in. tall. from Fine Woodworking #221
