A Different Lookin' Table

Newest Video! I love creating, here's what I'm up to!

I just tried to copy a really neat looking table I saw on the Village Lane Furniture website. You can see the original at this link http://villagelanefurniture.com/blog/tables-and-stands/

I had no dimensions so everything was a guess. I was going to copy the leg style but instead chose to use little balls for feet.

A different style of table and fun to build. I wanted to add all of the pics of the building process but ran out of photo spots. You just need to add the pieces to separate the top and base from the center cube, stain or paint, and put the three pieces together.

Estimated Cost
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Pine but oak flooring for the top
Finish Used
Summer Oak and Kona stains with two coats of polyurethane. I did sand to the 320 grit level on all surfaces and 400 grit on the top.

I love how we can take what we've learned from Ana about basic furniture building and use it to create some really unique stuff. I find myself analyzing the structure of furniture that I like, everywhere I go!

Pam you are so right. This is the second piece that I have just looked at in a catalog or web site and decided to build. Over time and after much advice and many mistakes you develop a sense of size, proportion, imagination,and building sequence that can produce great and interesting results.

I see something and immediately know if I can build it even with my little messy shop with some crude tools. The hardest questions come from the wife like: What is That? Where are you going to put it?

I just answer...."I don't know."
