Drafting is just putting lines on paper regardless of the source, I have visited my kitchen cupboards many a time looking for the right radius or the right shape. I think you did a bang up job, can not tell the thickness of the rails but you may want to put a ‘do not sit’ sign on it as all that glass would make for an ugly landing.

This looks like a very good idea. I could use one of these. Got any spare parts lying about?

We all have to turn to “non-traditional” woodworking tools at times. It just demonstrates our resourcefulness. The table is looking pretty good so far.

This is going to turn out nice. The work so far looks to be top shelf.

Have your say...
