Table


(ltp) #1

So i found a small circular table being disposed of recently.
The top was chipboard / melamine and it was rubbish. So i threw that out and kept the base.
Then i decided to make a new table top.

So I cut down some reclaimed timber.
Planned them all to the same thickness
then Glued them up.

Then I decided to Burn it using electricity (Lichtenberg Figures)
Thanks to Eris for the Transformer and @AdamBinns238 for the help.

Made some bracing to add some strength and thickness to mount the base.

I drilled some holes and mounted some nuts into the bracing.
Put it together for the first time

Looks amazing! Love to see the finished result.

So using a Hot air gun and a scraper I took off the excess epoxy

Then I have sanded it down (still needs some more to finish it)

Coolest table I’ve seen in a long time.

So I decided to just round the edge with a router.

Had a couple of failures occur as the timber was a bit unforgiving

Finishing up

Actually filled some holes with a bit of putty and or sawdust.
Filled up a bunch of cracks in the Wider band. the wood was very old and dry. So before I Finished it i filled up a lot of the cracks with Glue. Should help hold it together and is invisible.

Fixed up the issues with the router
Not entirely happy, but I dont have the time to do any better atm. Maybe I will modify this in the future to fix it. (not sure the best way yet. This will make it functional.

Actually mixed some of the same timber sawdust into some putty to try to get a better colour match.

is still pretty obvious though

Basically the final product (put a couple more coats on after this).
