Haven’t been able to post a project in a while; we recently moved, and my “creative workspace” has shrunk to a 10’x20’room over the garage. Once the weather cooled, I was ready to go, and make my first table. It is actually a plant stand, although it has seen service as a chair side table where it supports a martini quite nicely.
The top is 12″x12″ and the height is 28″. The legs are 1.25″ square and taper down to 0.75″. I intended it as a prototype, so i used the good quality pine from the local Home Depot. The next one will hopefully be made from some sort of hardwood.
The finish is Tried and True Varnish Oil, 5 coats, with lots of rubbing.
I am quite chuffed with the result, and have to thank Paul and his team for making the video so easy to follow.
Critic is welcome. I had a bit of trouble with the arches, my spokeshave skills need improvement.
Based on the above prototype I built another plant stand in cherry as a Christmas gift for my parents. The aprons are an inch longer and a bit wider to help with the proportions, and now have a bead detail instead of an arch.
Thanks Matt, I beaded to avoid the potential risks associated with the arch detail. 🙂
