It was going to be “coffee table”, but it seems much more likely that it’ll be used for wine. And, as if that itself weren’t a good enough reason to not call it “coffee table”, I figure if I drank a cup of coffee from every coffee table I’d ever made I’d be wired for a week. And, when SWMBO says ”errr, we don’t need another coffee table”, I can say it’s not a coffee table it’s a wine table – and it says so on the internet so it must be true.
Anyway – it’s obviously taken its inspiration, if you’d call it that, from this earlier piece of mine.The leg design wasn’t what I’d originally drawn, but the top seemed thinner than I’d expected, so I wanted a “more delicate” and lighter look and this is what popped into my head.
In the end, I need not have worried about another coffee table, just that ”that’s going to be hell to dust”. I guess I ought to factor “dustability” into any future design. (YR)
