Trio of hexagonal tables (I call them “Hextables”) made from reclaimed redwood from old buildings that were being demolished. I used a ShopBot and V-Carve Pro to cut the hexagons and spiral grooves. Then I used the router table to create edge molding. back to the table saw to cut the edges and leg pieces. Finally finished by using my oil paints to make the flowers and epoxy table pour-able top finish. The dark tone of the finished Redwood is a result of using the epoxy. I had hoped the lighter color shown in the progress photos would have remained. Yes I tested it on a cutoff but decided that the hard epoxy finish was what my wife would want for care.

BTW the ShopBot was in the now defunct, TechShop in San Jose, California. I am part of a replacement startup called Maker Nexus. If in the South Bay Area and interested in knowing about this go to makernexus.com
