hi no it s not another bowl i made this coffee table for a costmer that ordered it but did not want it after i had it finished they said they where sorry but they could not afford it now the way things are here in ireland the lady relly loved the table and wanted it but the man said no so that was that after me delivering it and all /
so i was a bit pissed off with them but that is life
well i brought it to the craft fare to day and it was the first thing i sold
every cloud has a silver lining and i sold 7 bowls also made it a great days all round
the table is a slab of spaltred beach that i had in the shop for a few years and nearley cut it up a few times to make platers glad i never did i think it makes a great table what do you guys and girls think be honest

it is about 4 ft long and 2ft wide at the widest point
around 17 inch high
thanks for having a look

You’ve made a work or art, not just a bench. I’m sure the new owner will love it.

That’s a lovely looking table Branch, I know the feeling about people changing their minds after the work is done. Congrats on the sales at the show

Fantastic table. I have two slabs about that size, now I know what to do with them. Thanks for the idea!
