Small tray table
Mogens Lassen inspired
This is not a big woodworking project, in fact almost not at all..
A small tray, few cuts in plywood, nails and lacquer on top of a metal cube.
The design is inspired from my Mogens Lassen candlesticks.
Mogens Lassen was a Danish architect, a master. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mogens_Lassen
As a child I had the luck to live in one of his houses, and later my father was given the prototype for his for candles candlestick by the blacksmith that used to make them, this was later given to me.
When I was a student I learned to weld and there I made the other two with one and eight candles, years before they were in production, I had seen them in a book about him.
So when I got my new apartment I could give them a new friend, I made the little table inspired by them.
1. The table with Mogens Lassen candlesticks.
2. Table saw in the new workshop kitchen.
3. A simple tray of plywood.
4. The metal cube and tray with feet.
5. In the new apartment with temporary furniture’s and my sweet daughter.
6. Now in my new home.
Actually some of you have seen the table before… Or the metal frame, since it was originally made for my garden in the old apartment. but was here with a concrete top.
And I still know how to enjoy a good pipe of tobacco…
