Just finished this sofa table for the family room. The top is Canary wood and the base is 1/2” copper plumbing pipe. The slabs are ‘V’ shaped ever so slightly (center depth of slab is 1-1/8” and the edges are 7/8”. Overall dimensions are 72” x 12-1/2” x 30”.
The hardest part was getting the patina on the copper. It never got to where I wanted it to be but in many ways, it came out better. The happiness of creation, eh?
In retrospect I should have used 3/4” pipe as it’s a little flimsy, but as long as no one bumps into it, it should be fine. The detail between the slabs mirrors the detail at the bottom of the legs.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with it…and more importantly, so is my wife. ;-)
It took me four times after posting, editing, and saving changes, to get more than two pictures uploaded. Thoughts?
