That was my first real handmade project after just reading and following Ana Whites story and her diy projects for a while.
I´m coming from Germany and it took quite a while to "translate" all the lumber measurements to the german equivalents, since we don´t have the same ones. So I just took the similar lumber sizes I could find in a hardware store (Baumarkt), all in all 23 € for pine lumber plus wheel casters for 30 € each, which was the most expensive part of the project. I modified the size of the table as well and am very proud to present you my first project: my very first industrial coffee table for the home office.
I made the stain myself, by the way!
Here is the summary:
- one layer of black strong coffee (3 table spoons + 500 ml hotwater)
- 2-3 layers of steel + vinegar solution (sanding a bit inbeween)
- 2-3 layers of spar varnish (sanding a bit inbetween)
Hope you like it;) and thanks a lot to Ana White for being so creative and delivering loads of beautiful diy projects for woodwork lovers all over the world!
Looking forward to my next project!!!
