Function over Form Coffee Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Function over Form Coffee TableWell, I figured I might as well post it since I mentioned it in a previous project and also in a forum.Thanks to the LJs in the forum, the top is not only glued, but also screwed into the base with some room for wood movement (see, I'm listening).The base isn't me at all. I did tighten the legs and touch up quite a few nicks with a touch up marker. But the base used to be a glass coffee table that I bought from our Habitat for Humanity's ReStore for $25. It's actually super solid!The top is some Ambrosia Maple that I picked up from our local Lowes.As I mentioned, my wife is traveling (hence all the clocks I'm finishing). She absolutely hates the glass coffee table that we currently have, which I got in my divorce:You can actually see the very first bowl I ever did on top of the glass coffee table. But, anyway, the glass table is constantly filthy in smudges and we are forever bumping our shins and knees into it. My wife is going to be stoked when she sees this new table.You can see under the glass coffee table our Ruggable. A Ruggable is attached to the floor with velcro. It can be pulled up from the velcro and thrown in a washing machine (I highly recommend if you have animals or kids or a white rug).The hassle? Moving the coffee table to get to the rug. I know she hates that, so I did add casters to the new coffee table. Lowes had some antique brass ones that looked pretty good:I did counter sink the screws and filled the divots with plastic wood. Here might be my proudest moment in this project. From making the clocks with the Ambrosia Maple, I learned that with a pencil I could draw on the wood and extend patterns… that way I could make my frames on the clocks seem to flow into each other.It made me wonder if I could hide the countersunk screws. I used a pencil, a pen, and some touch-up markers.Here's a before:And here's the after:In my picture gallery for this table you can see three other examples of counter sunk plugs I hid with this method. Yes, I know you can see them when I point them out, but they would be hard to spot if someone wasn't actively looking for them.The nice thing? Even though I used a lot of my Ambrosia Maple for this table, I didn't come close to using all of it. I would imagine I could make 10 clock faces with the cut off ends that I have left… so that's good!Now that the table is done, I HAVE to clean up this house! She comes home tomorrow night, and I've been doing some major bachelor living with two teen daughters who have been doing some major bachelorette living,Lots to clean… which means my over-posting on the project page is done for awhile!Thanks for looking and for helping!

Furnished content.

Another White Oak BowlI had two pieces from that branch so I took another shot at a bowl today and fixed my issues from the last posting, short sidewalls. Not much more to say, happy with it and love that end grain like on the last. Thanks for checking it out!

We Try (and Fail) to Make An NFT

Furnished content.
(from Popularwoodworking.com)


A dive into the world of non-fungible tokens reveals what's real in the world. It seemed like a simple enough idea at the time: let's make an NFT. Thirty seconds of google quickly told me it was never going to …Source
