This is my most recent completed project.

I was looking to challenge my hand cut joinery and draw inspiration from one of my favorite builders. (Mr. Nakashima)

This stand was inspired heavily by his Conoid Table and is made from Cherry.

Nicely done!

G.K. is THE man! I used to hang in Newhope when I was a kid, where he had his shop. His memory still lives on there in a shop on the main street where you can buy over-priced slabs.

Ive done some imitations as well, and one thing I might suggest, is to put a slight bow (barely visible) on the floor-edge of the stabilizers so that only the very ends touch the floor. This will prevent any rocking or wobble due to the floor not being perfectly level, or any future expansion of the wood.

Beautiful piece. I would build one if my dog was still with us.
It would have been the icing on the rice cake if we could have seen you best friend wearing a Kimono while drinking or eating from it. (: ~+)

Nakashima yep that’s as good as offering Pottzy a drink for sure.
Just how big is your dog?
beautiful work and timber selection!

I made a conoid chair prototype never went full build! a bit hard to get walnut here now.

Thank you for the feedback, I had considered adding the bow to the bottom but opted to add little rubber feet underneath instead to prevent the table from being pushed around. I’d love to use this design again for a dining or coffee table and will for sure be using your recommendation to add the bow.

Ours isn’t too big, she’s a smaller size Vizsla. But I made this for a charity auction using “Medium/large” bowls, so decided to make it for the taller breeds.
The picture is a bit deceiving but the stand is only about 13” tall.

I’m with Mel. This is nicer than most of the human furniture I’ve built. Nice design and execution.
