A few months ago I made this slab coffee table for a friend of mine.
I wanted to do something special for the base and I decided to build a carved, sculpted, and textured base. I wanted it to look kind of sort of like a tree trunk. I say sort of because I was more focused on creating a “cool” texture than I was on creating a realistic bark texture.
I also wanted to do something cool for the coloring. Initially, I wanted a bronze finish. I was very successful in painting a realistic looking bronze finish, but the bronze coloring was too green for the reddish colored slab so I had to start over!
So then I applied a painted copper finish and it looked MUCH better.
I have 5 YouTube videos on this. Here is a link to a Single Short Video of the ENTIRE Build Process
I have articles on my website that cover every step of building this table.
I also wrote several blog articles about this table, some of them are on my LJ Blog
I am VERY happy with how the table AND the Videos turned out!
Please take a look at these and let me know what you think.
