The concept of the gem table has prong setting-like table legs that hold the gem table top in place. The table top design is fun with an overlapped silhouette of different gem cuts. It will become a small-sized coffee table. The material is 0.75 thick plywood that we will be cutting with SDSU's CNC machine.

Ta-da! Table joinery sample assembled!



After hammering down each pieces I realized that the visible corner cuts were too visible. Therefore, I modified the orientation of the corner cuts so when they are fitted together the joinery area is more invisible. I am planning to cut out my gem table pieces next week. I can't wait to upload photos of the final piece! To be continued ;)

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!
