  • I've spend my summer of 2013 at California College of the Arts, where I had 3 weeks to design a table, from concept to finished piece. I've designed a coffee table based in simple (but awesome!) geometric shapes and contrasting with rounded tapered legs. It was a very intense project, and I'm very happy with my results.  Check out my process!
  • Start off sketching some ideas on paper and picking up one to further develop on Solidworks and figure out how many square foot of lumber I needed.
  • Took my drawings and cut list to the lumber yard and start my search for the right wood.
  • With the technical drawing in hand I've decided how I was going to get the table top, made all the necessary glue ups and got it cutted in the correct angle to get the hexagonal shape. For joinery I've used biscuits for the 45˚ angles and dominos for the rest and then glue all parts together.
  • To get the legs I've cutted it in the correct sizes and used the lathe machine to get it rounded.
  • In order to get the designed taper, I've made a scale drawing of the legs to get the diameter of five different locations of the table leg, in that way I could measure as I was going through the process.
  • Rounded!
  • The table legs are detachable so it could make it smaller to transport, and to get that I've used threaded inserts to the table top and hanger bolts in the legs.
