Girder Fork Table Mark II

I decided to make another version of the Girder Fork table. This one has solid “forks” which simplify the joinery and offer new design opportunities. I left a void at the top of the leg to lighten the mass and to give a subtle outside “curve.” ┬áIt is interesting how the shape changes as you walk around the table or spy it from different parts of the room.

I also changed the apron for this table, that is, it runs the full length of the table. It gives the piece a timeless more familiar feeling.

Lastly I made a new top for the original Girder Fork table, with an asymmetrical arrangement of the boards.
