Coffee Table From Scraps
Here was a little project I did from a bag of scraps of triangles and pieces after making a big order of tables for a winery here in Australia. I needed a new coffee table for home. So I got all the peices being Jarrah and Blackbutt 2 Australian timbers and started dominoing them together and the pieces just started to come together. It sure was an excercise in the domino’s ( Festool), and with a few coats of some Treatex hardwaxes in a matt finish to keep the natural look it has come up a treat. I had to make it so my wife could fit her knitting box under it for when she knits whilst watching TV, and me … I have somewhere to put my feet up. Everyone is amazed that the result is from scraps, but the scraps where 32mm thick and way too nice to use in a fire, there has been no new timber added just the scraps I had and imagination. Ohhh and it weighs about 40 kgs so guess who has to move it when she vacuums.
