New End Table

This week I finally got some of the pieces I have been working on into the studio to be photographed.  I've been having so much fun making stuff I didn't get around to showing it off.  This 3 legged end table features turned ash legs, a hard maple center, and is toped with a 12 inch piece of glass.  

I spent lots of time on the lathe for this one.  Not only are the legs turned but the hard maple center is as well.  In this table I am still playing with the place where raw and finished surfaces meet.  the smooth turned edge on the center piece look really nice with the hard surfaces of the tree bark.  the bark of the tree is also still visible on the single leg under the raw edge of the center.
