Tip & Turn Table

Why not choose a project with some history? The tip and turn table is a great woodworking challenge and a surefire conversation starter.

When you see this table for the first time, it's hard to know where to focus your attention. Between the figured veneer of the top, the graceful curves of the legs, and the six-sided column, there are plenty of things to catch your eye. But the most interesting feature is one that you don't notice right away. Under the top of the table, you'll find a small, box-like assembly called a "birdcage". And it's this birdcage that makes the table really special — it allows the top of the table to both tip and turn.
