    Beautiful, but I would rather have it as a wall hanging. Our "coffee table" is always covered with....junk, you never see the table top.

    The part that impresses me the most is the glass curves, I know someone who cuts curves can probably make that happen pretty easily but my few attempts at straight lines were plenty challenging enough!

    That is some pretty stuff. I'm guessing the glass is water jet cut? or CNC laser maybe??

    I found a couple of tutorials on youtube for cutting curves with just a glass cutter (although I have no idea how these were cut). The folks doing that made it look really easy, I'm sure with enough practice it might perhaps seems that way

    There is a pretty good chance that he uses a ring saw. I have one of them and it will cut heavy glass, curves or straight no problem. I have the Revolution XT and it is sweet.

    I'd guess he had a glass shop cut the pieces from layered safety glass, probably using a water jet. they look to also be rounded off on the edges. Here is his website: http://gregklassen.com/collection/river/ & some youtube videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/gregabeklassen/videos

    Nice pieces and very creative.
