Still working on the side table... I didn't have a design for the skirting of the table, but I thought that putting on the cladding would get me going and give me some idea's... sad to say; it hasn't so far. So... no inspiration and thus not much progress. But I've done some.
The marble top isn't quite symetrical, so i had to pay attention for every curve in the wooden top to make it fit.
I intended to use vineer to clad the sides of the curves in the wooden tabletop. Unfortunatly that didn't work out so I had to come up with an other sollution.
I used little pieces of solid mahogany and filed it into shape to fit the curves of the top. So no bending desired. The advantage of this is the thickness of the wood; it gives me more then enough flesh to carve the skirting.
I have been drawing and sketching for a week now... turning the piece in my hands hoping to get into some sort of flow.... but I'm trowing the paper balls in the bin at the same speed :-) I'm increasing the distance every day and i'm still scoring!
