well... top stuff then. What kind of joints did you use, other then the obvious mitre joints on the table top? Is the center piece on a ball bearing, like how does it spin? Have you got a photo of underneath the table?

Excuse me for my curiosity, I just think it looks pretty swell.

lol thanks. the main joints i used were mortice and tenon joints they were on all the chairs and the base of the tables. the table top i used a rebate on the inside edge of the border that slotted the centre pieces in.
with the spinning top there is a piece that i got for free of an outdoor furniture salesman which essentially runs on ball bearings. here are some more fotos

I wish i had photos to show yous, but its on my school account - stupid macs!

Though i have been pretty down about my bad folio & i think, not a very good 3-piece major project.....my trial exam, just i found a tad hard cos i didnt study...but i came third (out of 6) of my class (of males!)...i got 75%...the best out of all my exams!

So i'm happy about that :)

Mine cost me $650 total, i had about 45 pages for the folio and top in my class for the theory side.

My mate in my class got his job, which is a fold up side table, was select in the INTECH 2006 display. And the other day he was movin so furniture and accidently scatch the top, oww.

nice job stew_g17 love it, would of been a bitch to store it though, and cart around.

Hey,
I've made a 'blanket box' that sits at the foot of a bed. I was going to put lights around the base of it for marking, but ran out of time. After I got it back i put in the lights and now it sits in my room and looks awesome.

Here are links to some pictures:

I made this dressing table in 2004 I got a band 6. There are two cabriole/spoon legs and two normal ones all with matching beading at the top, two draws and a pretty bodgy vanity mirror.
