It has been awaile since completing and posting my last project. My Daughter graduated with a Masters Degree in International Public Health from University College in Dublin, Ireland this spring so we traveled there this spring to bring her back home, My Son graduated from the Indiana Police Acadamy this fall, I have been busy making and replacing all my kitchen cabinets as well as my butlers pantry (stay tuned for those pictures..it is turning out really nice!) My Son popped the question to his future wife while we were in Ireland at The Balarney Castle so they have just moved into their first place and asked if I would find time to make them a coffee table. He had a piece of 1/4” 24” x 48” beveled glass so I just had to make the table around the glass. I used an idea that I modified from a plan from woodsmith to make the table. It is made from QSWO and is finished with 3 coats of shellac; brushed on the old fashion way. I sanded with 1000 grit between each coat and topped it off with 2 coats of paste wax. The table is about 54” x 26” x 16” tall. It fit just right in the kids apartment! Well back to the shop to work on the kitchen cabinets!
Thanks for reading about my table and I hope it inspires you to make one too.
