This was a project for friends of mine who are opening a bar with an 80’s theme. They asked me to build a light bright table. I have seen these online, but the plans were, well, not up to Lumberjocks standards.
I made the table with mortise and tenon joinery, tapered legs, removable peg board to allow the pegs to be changed, watertight top in case a drink is spilled, hidden door to remove the peg board, ect., ect., ect..
Not a screw, or tool mark on the thing. Then, they wanted me to paint it metallic silver.
In hindsight, I should have used the rudimentary plans I found online, plywood, screws showing, stock 1x legs ect..
Instead of using “Peg Board” for the peg board, I drilled my own. Why? I didn’t like the way the pegs sat in the store bought peg board. You know what I’m talking about, If you feel its not right, than its not, and we then make a jig, buy a tool, invent a process, to get the look we know we want. 750 holes, hand drilled, then re-drilled after painting because the paint made the pegs too tight. Ugh.
All in all, I loved making this thing. When I first lit it up, it was really cool.
Thanks for viewing!
