Curvy Glass-Top Coffee Table
“My wife wanted a coffee table with a glass top, while I wanted a design that would be delicate with many curves,” Gary said. He used wood that he had milled and kiln-dried from a large cherry tree on their property that had been damaged by lightning. The curves in the base, particularly the center circle, required some difficult mortise-and-tenon joinery. “I have made many woodworking projects over the years,” Gary said, “but this is the most ‘artistic’ design I’ve tried (not an easy thing for an engineer).”
