Mission Style DVD Storage Table #1: Planning and Sketchup Model

I have always been a big fan of the art deco style and early 20th century skyscrapers so I decided to combine both for inspiration for my virtual table design. After plowing through tons of images I found a really great art deco mirror from the 1930’s that really inspired me for the tabletop..For the leg inspiration I used my favorite skyscraper ever designed The Empire State Building!...So this is Art Deco Empire State Dining Table! The material is tiger maple and wenge. The top...
