My customers had a fine old oval table top in walnut. The feet had been damaged beyond repair. They asked me to make a new pedestal. After a few drawings, I made 2 mockups at 1/4 scale, one with a rectangular design, the other oval like the top. We decided the oval looked nicer, and I built this. The feet are shaped with the band saw and finished with drawknife and rasp, the skirt is laminated walnut.
