The pedestal base will be made from 1" thick, 2" wide material - I first modeled with 1 1/4" thick, 3" wide material and it looked too clunky. The uprights have a concave curve that I think will make it look more elegant.

I've been working on the joints of the pedestal. In the model, they are bridle joined, with the uprights being tenoned into the feet (and top supports). But I've been experimenting with a mitered bridle joint, that I think might look better. It's just more tricky to get it to fit right. So I did some tests in some scrap pine.

For this project I have the last of some old redwood 2x6 boards that were once a part of a deck.

but I know there's some beautiful redwood inside
