Skinny Table

WoodNet Forums member Blaine solved a difficult problem with this attractive walnut table.

My mother-in-law recently moved into a Senior apartment in her home town. Outside of the door to many of the apartments there is a very small alcove where the residents often put a shelf of some sort to personalize their space and "welcome" others to their door. I designed and built the table (above) to fit in that alcove as a Christmas present.... I had a lot of fun making this piece. It's got way more curves than anything I've made before and the spokeshave was of tremendous value and way too much fun to use. The table is an odd shape/size, but it's going to work pretty well in its final resting place.

There are lots more photos and comments in the WoodNet Forums post.
