Learning on the Job

WoodNet Forums member 2exhausted designed this end table for his living room as a project in which he could gain experience using shop sawn veneer. He gives special thanks to John Fry who helped him through whole process.

Learned how to make shop sawn veneer, learned an easy way to make perfect cuts on a sled and the correct sequence of gluing everything up..doing the edge band in walnut proved to be a real challenge.
The legs and base are maple. The top is shop sawn birdseye maple over an MDF substrate. It stands 24.5" tall, the base is 19" wide, the top is 20.5" in diameter with the main area up to the roundover profile at 19". More photos along with how-to and discussion at WoodNet. Nice job!
