A table I knocked up over the weekend. (ha ha ha only if it was so true)
This seeming small project gave me more grief than any other project I have done.
Firstly my design criteria of a Black mirror finish table with flip top and no visibe hinge or gap at the table top did not align with my physical skills at the time nor the material components I used.
The finish varnish and stain was a absolute brute to apply, and hence the resultant poor finish, about 6 coats later I conceided defeat on producing a black mirror finish with either a brush or roller.
Anyway enough of the belly aching.
Its pallet pine finished with Feast Watson Black Japan Stain and varnish lined with removable panels and using euro style hinges
Joints are glue and pocket hole method
The removable base is 6mm Fabric covered MDF, the removable sides are 3mm MDF covered with the same material
I did a blog on its construction so take a look (and have a hanky handy) its not one of my more impressive blogs, heaps of errors and frustating results for very little final result, however it is finished and didnt end up on the footpath half way through !
Perils of using rubbish timber I think it has a warp in the frame already.
I am just waiting for a friend to spot and admire and it so I can unload it…. my Canadian mate comes to mind !!
