It's interesting. The seams at the edges look like formica with the obvious white joint. If it's wood veneer, it's interesting that the woodworker was skilled enough to make the edge joints of the veneer completely disapear in the curved area, but was unable to make them disappear in the corners.

They claim it's wood.

Veneer or not, I can see the joints in the curved area pretty clearly, especially on the closeups on the page you posted.

You see the joints in the curved area because of the grain changes at the joints.

glatt 08-31-2017 07:36 AM

exactly. I see where the joints should be, but I don't see the glue line.

There aren't any glue lines because everything is pressed together with a high pressure after being soaked with resin.

On the corners and edges, there's not much you can do about it if you want the clean lines of the veneer to go all the way; one or both of the ends of the veneer will be visible, and if the veneer makes a sharp corner, it's likely to chip. Some get around it by adding a frame of solid wood, or metal, around the edges, but that would break up the lines.

Zig-Zag stitch instead of butterflies, makes that opening more usable too.

Um... yeah.

Yeah, but that oozing and running calls for a different medication.

Swing baby...

When we were teenagers a friend of mine did that to his bed using chain and eyebolts.

Swung himself to sleep every night.

OK, building your own band saw is cool, and maybe your own block planes, but I can't buy making a tape measure. Nope, no way.

Another of those glass tables but a little different than the critters rising up through the surface like it was water. One thing you can count, an absolute truth, when there is a figure it will be female.
