This is a cherry demilune table with curly maple veneer finished with shellac. It was a project from a class I took with Phil Lowe a master and true gentleman.

very beautiful! I have a couple questions:

First, for the arched front panels, did you bend them or did you carve them out on a bandsaw?

Second, I see the miters in the corner of each panel. Are the four sides of the panel separate pieces?

the curve is created by bricklaying popular and then cutting the curve on a bandsaw. There are 3 separate panels in between the legs which are mortised and tenoned in the back and in the front with a bridal joint

Extremely nice. I love your table. Can you explain what you mean by “bricklaying”? I would love to have an opportunity to sit under Phil’s instruction. Thanks for posting.
