Default NAKASHIMA INSPIRED TABLE

I've seen pictures of some of his stuff that I liked a whole lot
better than this.

Kind of looks like it was made from the cut off bin at the local
sawmill. Maybe he was impatient waiting for his lumber delivery to
arrive and went dumpster diving. :-)

This looks wrong. I think the top is too small for the base, or if
it's to be this size it should be closer to the floor. Plus, I don't
think Nakashima would use a metal "T" bracket, I think something
clever in terms of wood to wood joinery would have been done by him.

Ugh. Wrong porportions, and that shiny finish makes the natural edge
actually look fake. Nice thought but the design missed.

Looks more like it's Nagasaki-inspired.

Gotta agree with all previous, esp. Lazarus. I had the good fortune to
accidentally catch an exibit of his work at a museum here in LA. If any
of you ever get the chance, it'll be worth your time.
