Finally! A project isn’t really done until it is posted on LJ’s, is it? Needless to say this was a very challenging project, at least for me. It seems like every part had to be built or rebuilt, finished and refinished a number of times before getting it right. And I had to ‘invent’ or at least discover a number of techniques, skills, solutions, and joints that were very new to me. This journey is being documented in the new blog series Art Deco TV Table with the first chapter Form Follows Folly already posted. http://lumberjocks.com/newTim/blog/71162
The table is made out of holly veneer and solid where appropriate, and tinted/dyed sapele. Some of the photos show it with a glass top I had cut to protect against scratches and such from heavy use. All in all, this was a very satisfying project. I learned a lot and it is proving to be a great solution to a very specific design challenge. I hope you enjoy it and the blog. It is good to be back on LJ’s.
