    Non-turned: Tilt Top Table

    Tilt-Top Table: The solid top is a twelve sided shape measuring 21 across and 5/8 thick. It is able to both rotate and tilt (for storage/display) by means of a birdcage which sits on top of the column. The underside of the top has been reinforced with cleats to ensure it stays flat. The column is six sided, hollow and has been profiled with a band saw. The feet are 5/8 thick and attach to the column with sliding dovetails. The finish is Minwax Cherry stain, topped with 6 wiped on coats of semi-gloss polyurethane thinned 50% with naphtha.

    For anyone interested, I photo-logged the whole building process for my contest entry. I figured I may need evidence!

      I was interested and enjoyed the pics, and the walk through. Thanks. I liked the finished project very much. There is certainly some talent on this forum.

      If the skipper heard you call that deck a floor he would throw you through that little round window

        Great work! Wonderful detail and planning.

        Maybe next contest there will have to be a best category for documenting ones project.

        Thanks for taking the time and for sharing. I really enjoyed seeing how your project was put together.

          If there is, then I might actually have a chance at winning! I seem to be better at documenting than actually making stuff.

            Very cool, I enjoyed seeing how you tackled the various challenges on your project. I also got some ideas from you that I may try and incorporate in the headboard I am getting started on.

              Ummmm... I've seen a lot of your work. How are you going to build a headboard on a lathe?

                Have you seen how big his turnings are? It's going to be a zillion teeny tiny round pieces glued together

                    I thought all my other tools were just support tools for my lathe!
