Teak side tablePosted: May 21, 2011 | |
The idea was to build what should look like a floating table top. At first I didn’t realize that most of the work would be in creating the table top itself as the original teak stock which I intended to use didn’t glue up nicely, partly because of the lack of decent jointer, the rest is due to lack of experience I guess.
To overcome the gluing problem I decided to slice the wood into thin stripes which I glued one by one on their sides which gave the fantastic pattern. Building the legs was no big deal and I only had an issue with the finish which was planned to be a burned metal but came out rather nice with the black primer.
