Ebony-stained birch plywood and three-quarter-inch copper pipe console table. I think this has a mid-century modern vibe. Table top measures 40” x 12”. The two lower cube shelves are approximately 12” wide by 9” deep by 12” tall.

Pretty nice design and combination of materials. Black colour with copper match just fine.

Very cool. That copper pipe will only get better looking with age too!
Thanks for sharing.

Nice job – I like the copper/wood combo.
Perhaps you’ve covered this elsewhere, but how do you attach the copper pipe to the wood?

Thanks for your comment. I drilled 7/8” holes with a Forsner bit as deep as I can and supplemented with PC-7 epoxy on this project.

Thanks – having looked up “PC-7 epoxy” that looks and sounds a bit like what my dad used to call “araldite” – that opens up a whole new ranges of possibilities.

And I’ll have to check out the araldite!

BTW, one thing I’ve learned about the PC-7 is that if the joint is going to have a lot of stress on it, let the epoxy set after mixing the two components for about 30 minutes. This will strengthen it. It wasn’t important on this project, but on another
where the epoxy supports the entire piece, it was important.
