This is a sculpting table I made for my wife for Christmas. It’s Baltic Birch and features a removable center lazy suzan secured with N-35 Neodymium magnets.

Thanks, yeah that was before I did the restoration on the 1954 Mark V. This 10ER has since been converted to a metal lathe.

Great idea for a sculpting table, what did you coat the working surface with? How easy is it to remove the
working surface if she wants to change projects? Thank you for sharing.

This is a nice practical project and I’m sure that your wife really appreciates it.

Watco Danish Oil finish.

RE: How easy is it to remove the working surface if she wants to change projects?

According to her, the working surface will always be covered with some kind of paper while being used, IE wax or parchment or newspaper, and so the actual surface will never come in contact with the sculpting medium, so removing it will never be necessary.

Thanks helluvawreck, she absolutely loves it. The removable secondary table makes it highly adaptable to different sized projects. Most of them will be done on that smaller round, but larger ones are still possible because it can be removed.
