NAME: Bent Wood Table
TYPE: Furniture Design
MATERIAL: Ash, MDF (formwork), Polyurethane (finish)
SKILLS: Woodworking – Bent Wood Lamination, CAD
SUMMARY: Using strips of ash lumber, the wood flows from the base to be the structure, table top, and back down to the base. Each strip is made of 3 layers of wood that are 1/8" thick by 2" wide and then spliced together to create loops. Afterwards, each loop is spliced together to create the depth required for a table top surface.
