no previous part Part 1 of Coffee table - for the adventure series no next part

Im getting out on my own again from three years ago that forced me to no live on my own. heh. Im designing a coffee table that maybe a little expensive but im ready to make purchases each month to get the wood I like to make this darn thing. :D First off I like the look of Bubinga wood when its all done up. Im also thinking of putting an ebony trim of detail on the top of some form. Some ideas and maybe some other types of wood Im not considering here might be nice as im not a professional. hehe.

hmmm… it really depends on the design doesn’t it? you can get gorgeous wood and butcher it by using it in an inappropriate manner… although it might end up making it even better… who knows.

do you have a design concept in mind already? or just brewing it up?

I thought I had a good design made up but Im still changing ideas and coming up with others. Its nuts. Im thinking because the Bubinga has terrific grain it should be shown and should have long open lines and not alot of small parts and cuts. Im having problems with the current design though as to if it has enough support to handle moving and regular wear and tear. Though no one is going to be table dancing on this either. They better not I tell yah or feet are getting chopped. Id post a pic of the design but not sure how to do that yet. Ill get a rough copy made up in ms paint and see if I can do that.

Just a quick thought… Leopard wood might be nice as well. just not sure on the density of it.

Have your say...
