SpiralConeLegs' Shop Announcement

Everything here is made of our own design, with our own hands, in our home shop.
A husband and wife collaboration, These table legs grew from a dinner napkin sketch that she made.

These unique modern table legs are made of 1/4" cold steel round bar formed and tig welded into a spiral cone ending at a 1-1/2" diameter solid steel ball.
Made with my own hands in small numbers in Ventura CA, They are very sturdy and can support a heavy table.

The benches are brand new, I have been thinking of these for years, and working on and perfecting the process for the last six months or so.
Not at all satisfied with the mass of material required by a solid wood bench, I decided to make these benches instead as stressed skin panels. A stressed skin panel is a ridiculously efficient shape, where the structural material is only placed where it is in either compression or tension. Think surfboard, but with birch plywood for the outer skin instead of fiberglass.

I can't begin to tell how pleased I am with the result; these things are impressively strong, note the photo of an un-upholstered bench with over a thousand pounds of gravel stacked on top of it!

Furthermore this substantial saving in weight is all in the bench top, giving the bench a lower center of gravity, which is always a nice thing. We keep one at the foot of our bed that gets pressed into service at the dining table every Saturday night.

The initial offering consists of these three sizes, 36" 47" and 59" length
