Table of contents


The first of two waney edged tables complete.


Legs sprayed with primer and black enamel. Table top sanded, smoothed with a cabinet scraper and nourished with four layers of Danish oil.
Until I can purchase more 1mm brass rod, I'll have to set this project aside. So next technique to try - laserable rubber and a tote bag tutorial.
Have a wonderful weekend

  5. All your hard work paying off, these look so realistic! The wood grain looks like the perfect scale and you got such great colour variation. I like how you can see everything you worked so hard on, even the L brackets are just slightly visible. It must be great to have something so sturdy and you don't have to worry about a leg falling off.
    Can't wait to see what else you come up with using the laser! :)

    1. Thanks Kristine. I did the acid test - placed English dictionary on them and crossed my fingers :0) The brass rod is surprisingly strong when you put three rods together :0)

    Can't wait to see your next project... I hope laserable rubber doesn't have too awful of a smell when its lasered.

    1. Seriously? $1,000 ??? That can't be right. Man, that has gotta be some impressive butterfly chair. I need to find measurments of a real one and give this a go. :0)

    2. Sorry, I meant to say yes, I will eventually sell or giveaway extra tables that I don't want :0)

  22. I'm a bit late but I need to join in the choir of shouting "stunning", "impressive", "awesome"... Wonderful, wonderful work with the wood looking very good. And now I am very curious about the laserable rubber... ;O)
