I designed this table based on a coffee table I built before in which the material that is placed in the center is interchangeable. 1/8”x1” Aluminum displays the centerpiece and adds a lot of rigidity. The spline is not aluminum, I just capped the end as a highlight.
There is just one base coat of thinned tung oil on it right now. I’m thinking about using waterlox for the finish. Has anybody used waterlox on a table or counter before?
I originally wanted to place concrete in the center but that idea is giving me problems, so now I’m looking for interesting glass or acrylic. But nice acrylic is expensive so maybe I’ll use crackle glass or just a simple piece of frosted glass. If any one knows of a any really unique glass I’m open to suggestions.
