A good neighbors of mine, Mark and Pam showed up last year and gifted me 5 pieces of walnut that they have had stored in their garage for 40+ years. The 2” by 5” stem” of this table came from their gift. The top is a 2” thick walnut I bought a few years back and wasn’t really sure what to do with until I got the 2×5.
Thank you for your feedback and comments.

Wow! deja vu – walnut side table with spiral base – we had one from a major furniture company when I was growing up – it is the one and only piece of furniture my sister wanted from the house after mom died. Yours is much cooler – the one we had was well made but mass produced and much too fancy for style – I like your more rustic natural version. Thanks for posting.

Wow. Beautiful table. I like the organic shape of the base. Can you describe your process on that (tools, glue up…)?

Thank you swirt,
Basically, I use a chainsaw to shape the stem. For this one, I ended up using two additional pieces at the bottom. From there chisels and rasps and a lot of sanding. The top is off course a separate piece. If you don’t like sanding, this project might test your patience.

Thanks for the explanation. Yes with the luster on that finish I am sure there was a ton of sanding involved.

utterly fantastic – my mind just doesn’t work in the right way to accomplish that kind of architecture

Thanks Dick. You have the right mind; mine is perhaps a bit twisted.

I thought you just found a piece that was twisted.
