Re: Another coffee table

Re: Another coffee table ()

Derek Cohen (in Perth, Australia)
This is what I have come up with so far:

Looking at the photo, although not particularly clear, it looks like a plywood construction, and that the corners were created by steam bending over a form. Obviously, I am not planning to do that. Also, I do not plan to laminate a curve as this will not match solid pieces elsewhere.

One way is to use a solid corner and shape the inside and outside into a curve. Care needs to be taken with the grain direction. Something like this ...

The choice is then to either use dominos or a bread board. I think it should be the latter if the grain is running across the table top. However, if a breadboard, then the ends need to be longer, and could be a problem.

Other ideas? Hopefully better than mine

Regards from Perth
