Hey everyone, first off I would like to say thanks for all the welcomes. I have never met a more friendly online community.
I thought I would share my latest project. I’m fairly new at woodworking (started last summer) and have been working on this for about a year in total. I spent the winter months working on the stained glass portion of the project and the spring designing a coffee table around the stained glass. I decided to go with 1×6 poplar to border the glass, 2×2 poplar legs and 1×3 trim around the table. I used mortise and tenon joints (my first time every making them) with my newest and favorite addition to my tool collection (a plunge router). I used a simple Minwax mahogany stain with a satin finish.
As it stands the glass is inset into the table top and I put a 1/4 inch clear glass over top of the table to protect the stained glass and actually make it a useful table that can support items.
I’m not sure if I want to goto the next step. I was thinking of mounting lights underneath the table so you could really see the stained glass coming through. Kind of like the picture I attached. My only concern is how to mount the lights without having an electric cord running from the table. Any ideas?
Anyway just thought I would share my project and get your comments.
