As requested by Alf for new forum members to show a few projects, so here's one of a few for you all.

I created the pattern in autocad to fit 100% then outset by 1mm so this gives an even 2mm gap around the pieces. It was designed so you can attach any piece to any side.

The bases are hafele trumpet bases (smaller models).

I made them for xmas 2003. We was having a few children round so i wanted to make a fun set of tables. I thought they would go well in my sons room after that.

Todate, they have stayed in my office :lol:

Heh, after reading the title I was expecting something along the lines of a way to utilise the jigsaw in a router-style inverted fashion! :lol:

What a fantastic idea though! I really like how you can combine them in different positions - had you made a fourth, you could switch between a larger table for meal times and individuals for others.

What sort of veneers did you use (timber-wise)?
The contrast between each one also looks great and helps to define them further more.

How about some chairs next then! :wink:

Glad you like them.

I used Black walnut, cherry and maple onto an MDF core. I only made three at the time as i liked the idea of 3 over 2 or 4 :?

I want to make a few kiddies chairs to go with these, just got to get a sto**ge unit out the way first.


The mockup i first started with, i just spray painted the MDF and this looked really good too, a nice strong colour

This is really cool Andy, I love it.
I think you could easily commercialise those and I guess they would be rather quick to produce. Some cafés would like it with having the option to make bigger tables by assembling the jig pieces. It's just brilliant.
I also agree the contrasts of wood highlights it.
Well done :D =D>
