Made the top but the base was purchased. I don’t have that kind of capacity on my lathe. First laminated skirt I’ve done.

Thanks. It was a rush project. The skirt is 2 layers if bendable plywood and 5/32 layer of maple.

Nice work. You didn’t mention the size but I estimaed 60+ inches?

Many years ago I made a smaller 48” table with a laminated skirt. I used 1/8” oak plywood. Instead of the multiple cleats you used I routed a shallow grove in the bottom of the table to set the bands of lamination in as I glued them up.That helped hold them in the proper arc. I used fewer supports on the back side.

72”. Routing a channel is a interesting way.
