This was a fun project that was made with one of my Grandaughters. Alexis is 14 and I can say she is pretty switched on and so we decided to make a different set of tables. We did some rough sketches and she liked the idea of the suspended look so this was the result.Just to prove the Festool Domino is childs play, Alexis did all the domino joints. I cut the timber and the housing joints and she did the finishing.
The glass is held in place with adjustable jibs on the underside.
We used exterior Dominos to hold it all together as they also enhanced the look. It is made from cheap 38 mm square pine and the glass tops are all toughened with smooth edges. They do not take up a lot of room when stacked together and I am sure she will find them very useful whenever she leaves the home nest and goes out into her own world. I know when I first got married a set of tables would have been handy instead of the upturned cardboard box!
