this was one of our projects from third year of my carpenter technical training. has some features that i probably couldn’t replicate at home without all the finest tools that NAIT (the northern Alberta institute of technology) has to offer. such as the concrete top, the instructors had some pre-made rubber molds made up, and a vibrating table that insured the concrete had no honeycomb. The design was inspired from the Celtic hardware i found at lee valley. the school’s design, which we were free to expound upon as long as it didn’t use drastically more material, had elegantly tapered legs which i opted to make chunky and “primitive”. its oak ply and hardwood, stained black cherry. it was intended as an entry table, but has become a dry bar. the bottom cabinet holds many fine whiskeys and the drawers have glasses, cards and dice. all rabbeted jointery, nothing fancy. kind of “primitive” as i labelled it
-- just a goon with a hammer.
