Timber: Radiata Pine and Tasmanian Oak.
Finish: Feast Watson – Baltic Pine Stain + Satinproof + Find Buffing Oil
Glue: Aquahere PVA
Design: Modified from Scrappy Hearts Table Runner
My mother is very keen on patchwork. For Christmas one year I converted one of her more popular designs a coffee table. Joinery is various butt and halflaps.
This was another early project, where I didn’t plan for wood movement. The pattern is not veneer by 3/4” solid timber cut with coping saw and shaped by hand. 3 years later I removed the top, falttened both sides with a belt sander and glued it to a piece of ply. A functional piece which as pride of place at my parent’s house.
