    WIP turners coffee table. Finished

    I know not everyone likes these artsy pieces, but the ex-daughter in law asked me to made her a Steve table. She don't want anything anyone else has. So i just started building and this is what my warped little mind is coming up with.The walnut is some that a friend of ours from MI droped off a couple years ago. the maple burl is some i got off a tree at work. The center brace and the circle with the hollow form ain't glued or even sanded yet just sitting there for the pic. Thanks for looking and all comments or ideas are welcome.

    I'd say that's one handsome table!

    I'm not much for artsy... but that is simply amazing

    One of the more beautiful works I've seen.

    I like the circle but not a big fan of the hollow form though.

    I love it. Reminds me of something out of a (well to do) cottage in a fairy tale. That is a one of a kind and a guaranteed conversation starter for years to come.

    Interesting and unique.

    I like the circle but don't like the hollow form in it's present location. I like the HF separately though.

    That is some fine table. Very-very nice. Original but certainly not too artsy by any means.

    That's creativity at it's finest Steve, I like all aspects of it and it is for sure to be a conversation piece
