    How do you make the jig? How about a video tutorial on that? I sure couldn't make that fran without the jig. It's brilliant! Also we got a peek of your son. I assume he's your son. It may have been unitentional, but what a nice treat. Family makes it real.

      Hi Chris. Awesome work on the table. I have looking north and south for abdiy project for a geometric table and yours was the only one I found. Could you please upload a post about how you built the jig, it would really be helpful. Cheers.

    That is AWESOME! I have zero welding skills, but I’m wondering how feasible it would be to make from plumbing pipes (I am thinking copper ones) with threaded ends and joint? Home Depot here in the U.S. will cut pipe to specifications and thread the ends for you. Just curious as this is SO cool!! TIA.

      To me would look too bulky , and you would struggle to have find a pre made piece that screws the intersections together
      good luck

    I think something should be made from that awesome jig! I don't know anything about welding but it was fun to watch.
