I post on a local forum small simple projects I do for my house and sister. Recent was a 7ft window cornice and now making a folding wall mount craft table. To be real, neither a great deal of intricacy.

I member messaged me and wants to know if I can make either an Ottoman or an End Table that features a game used SF Giants 2nd Base, as in a real MLB 15×15x4 second base with 8” post attached.

Ottoman would be lame cuz wrapping in clear vinyl would look like crap.

I was thinking an curio style end stable. The base sets inside then a glass top goes over it.

Not sure if this is beyond my capabilities. I’ve got all the tools (table saw, router, nailers etc). Im 32 and my dad 60, has been a contractor for 30+ years. Together I’m sure we can. The time table is probably march.

Any tips and design ideas? The “client” said maybe a dovetail thing. I did pick up an Incra LS router table setup, have yet to use the thing being so busy and the learning curve.
