Good one, Clint. That looks like an Eames chair next to it?? I had just repaired one of them last month.
How did you cut the inside truly round?
What did yo use to make the bronze finish?

Cheers, Jim

Jim, I get the round glass cut to overlap the hollow, then use it to trace the inset, then carefully route it out by hand.

I get the bronze coating and patina solution from sculptnouveau.com. It’s fun, if a bit unpredictable.

It is an Eames that I purchased 35 years ago at a fraction of today’s price. I love it.

Here’s another one I’m working on:

Great idea, it makes a cool and unique side table. Like the finish. Great job!
