This is a wee project I wanted to have a go at with the better weather hopefully just around the corner. They are based around a plan of Steve Ramseys on Woodworking for Mere Mortals.
The left is European oak, and the right is Maple and Walnut laminated together. I turned a maple pin for the hinge on both tables.
Originally I cut all the holes at 75mm, but I found, although fine for wine bottles and larger glasses, “normal” glasses went straight through! So, I lined the glass apertures with a small circle of material. I haven’t got photos of that unfortunately, but was quite pleased with the result!
If you look closely at the stem of the Maple table, you can just see a sliver of metal, which turned out to be a bullet lodged on the batten! Not too much harm caused to the planer knives thank goodness!
The top is about 300mm diameter, and it sits about 600mm high. There is a metal spike epoxied into a rebate in the centre of the post, (which is a single piece of timber, split down the centre, rebated, metal glued in, and timber glued back together again) which sticks in to the ground about 250mm
