Stacked-Lamination End Table

Here’s a refreshing break from a traditional project. This end table has you sculpting wood in a way that’s more like pottery than woodworking.

The end table you see here was inspired by the work of Wendell Castle. To many he was known as the father of the art furniture movement. At the core of most all of his projects are layers of wood strategically laminated together then shaped into organic, liquid-like pieces that seem to defy gravity. This end table is not quite that ambitious. But the base has the same laminated DNA as it’s fancier siblings, so making those layers is where you’ll start. 1"-thick walnut sized from 5/4 boards make up the 23 layers of the body of the end table base. You’ll need eight templates to shape the layers of the base and the drawings for these are provided with the plan.
