« Part 5: Dying the top BLUE and spraying the lacquer Part 6 of Jellyfish Table series no next part

So I got the table top back from the spray booth (after it cured for a day) and it looked amazing!

Here are the three pieces back in my shop ready for assembly:

As with all my furniture I made little wood “buttons” to hold the components together to allow for seasonal wood movement as well as the ability to take it apart.

Here it is with the buttons in place:

And I finally get to see it completed!!!

Total Project Time: 50 hours

You can see the finished project HERE.

I will try to get some photos of the table with the lamp on it after I deliver it tonight.

-- Happy woodworking!

Wow Blake. This is well done. Your buttons for wood movement is a great idea. Is this something that you came up with or was it passed down from another ? Outstanding project.

Those buttons are not an original idea at all. I don’t remember where I originally saw them though.
