Spiral Column Pedestal Table

Building a hollow barley twist / spiral column pedestal table using the spiral attachment for the router lathe duplicator. This build also includes sliding dovetail joinery and layered wood staining for the table top.

This project was an EXPERIMENT and with the table assembled I found that the wooden spiral acted much like a very stiff spring (not surprising). This resulted in a very slight “wobble” of the table top if pushed.

I would advise anyone who replicates this project NOT make the spiral hollow. Alternatively one could try using a hollow column, but instead with TWO twists which may reduce some of the movement.
