Brisbane round dining table

About Project

The client’s brief was for a round dining table with a glass top and a fine timber base. With the base being the point of interest when seated at the table and looking through the glass. I took this as meaning the base should be the centre of attention and “on show” while you are seated at the table.

The concept behind the design is for the base to mimic the round top and to appear as one continuous form just as a circle is one continuous line. As the form works its way around, at each turn the elements of the form are curved or rounded in keeping with the circle.

The joinery for this piece is very challenging as all the joints are angled and/or meeting a curved surface. Due to this there was no room for error especially as everything is “on show” through the glass top. This was achieved using traditional woodworking techniques such as bridal joints and laminating the timber to create the curved elements.

The timber used is Tasmanian Blackwood, an Australian native hardwood. The top is 12mm toughened clear glass. The table is 1200mm diameter x 770mm high and designed to seat 5.
