I’m new here, lots of great information and inspiration!
These are two recent projects built to sell with my wife’s fused glass artwork at the local gallery/gift shop. I’ve always liker the arts/crafts/mission style and wanted to build examples, this way I get to hone my skills (And sell the results) until I find something I want to keep.
The unusual top came from some cutting board designs I found and I thought ‘what the heck…’ and decided to make these end tables unique (I actually made a set of two, only one is pictured). The wood prep work for the ‘basket weave’ top is by far the most time consuming.
In the process of cutting out all of those pieces of wood for the tops, plenty of extra offcuts and culls were made. I used the leftovers to make a bread board.
The tables are White Oak, ammonia fumed with a wiping varnish finish. The top also uses White Oak and the accent is Walnut.
The bread board has added Walnut feet and uses a mineral oil finish.
