The precision to cut all of those pieces knowing you would not tolerate gaps is incredible. Something that is very rare in woodworking. That looks fantastic.

DWyatt, Thanks. I did get a small gap between the first two boards and quickly figured out a "fix" by double cutting all subsequent boards for really tight joints. This is one time where clamps don't help---the boards either fit, or they don't. Each board was developed from a 6/4 blank and  immediately glued in, one at a time. This process took all week to fill in the field.
  Equally challenging was getting all the needle like tips to converge on a single point, again not perfect, but close.  Cheers Rob

Kinda looks like a big mushroom cap.  

The book matched pieces give it a nice look! It's a biggun.

Catching up on reading, yust got in from 'analog land': nuthin digital out in the boonies.
That table looks GREAT!
Book matched pizza slices, and a base underneath that has the strength of an anvil.

I wouldn't want you to reveal any super secret trade tricks, but is a Festool track saw the best way to get those air tight joints?

Andries, for the "air tight" joints I resaw, plane , sand, cut and glue immediately-one set at a time.I use a sliding table saw to cut the shape, than 1/4 of a blade width and a fence to "double cut " a small fraction off each face easing it against the fence until I get zero clearance. I then go immediately to glue with very little or no clamping.
 When I started the walnut pie shapes I noticed a hairline gap between number 2 and 3 and quickly went to "double cutting" which solved the problem. If you can see the joint, I call it a bad joint !  Cheers Rob

If you let the magic blue vape out its toast, if it just quit I've jumped around the soft start on my big porter cable and she fired back up and is still trucking, just hold on when you hit the go button.
