    Table Dancer....... pretty clever, huh? :wink:This is the 4th I've made using this technique, I'd like to say they are getting easier, .....but not much. shaping starts with the bandsaw, then an angle grinder with a Kutzall disc, then lots of rasp work, then sanding the devil out of it.... first pic is the glued up blank; 3 layers of 3/4 baltic birch, with about an inch of cuban mahogany on each side. 39"tall, poly finish.

    That's fantastic Barry!

    I can't imagine the amount of sanding that goes into that.

    The display along the back wall is quite impressive as well! I'm sure everyone would love to see a better picture of your collection if you don't mind.

    Wow, Barry. Even though you gave a short explanation, I don’t see how it’s done. Beautiful!

    Nothing to add to what's been said. Can't imagine being able to think of something like that much less make it.
