Received a table which was nearing the end of its life from a neighbor who no longer wanted it and this provided a good base from which to make this project from misc scrap. I put in a base with 2 by 4s and press board, closed off the sides with some old furniture scrap, routed 2 by 4s and some plywood finishing off the top with oak veneer.
The table began with a glass top but after putting in a plywood base I added to the top with a number of bottle caps and routed almost circle bottle/can holders, put a hole in the top for bottle top collection and decided I didn’t care for the exposed hole and thus the LJ steal from Kevin. Doesn’t nearly equate to the level of craftsmanship he exhibited link below but opens bottles and provided the desired cover.
Although not clearly displayed I wanted something to do with remaining strips of walnut, cherry, and maple left from end grain cutting boards and made a practice coaster using 1/8” thick strips and pour epoxy. I currently have 5 more curing with a much better setup so am trusting these will turn out well and will be posted later this week along with a coaster holder being made for my mother’s birthday… Thanks for looking…
