Arts and Crafts Coffee Table

Recommended Posts

If I charged an hourly rate it would be $10,000.

...but who would pay for all that innefficiency? Maybe the federal government will buy it?

Simple change the name from 'arts and crafts coffee table' to 'B2 information carriage system' and bob's your uncle.

LOL, it has been a while, thanks for asking! Nearly done with this bad boy, I was going to wait till done to post cause I am so close. All the woodworking is done, applied a coat of Danish oil. Once my available time and weather cooperate, I plan on spray laquer finish it. Here it is sitting on my dining room table, because that is the least likely place my kids won't damage it. I'll take some better pictures when complete, hopefully next few weeks...

Table's looking great. And kudos to your very understanding wife. I can see mine letting me put my projects on the dining table but I will show her your pic to see what kind of reaction I get :D

We have two 4year olds and one 3year old in our house. We gave up on the illusion of order long ago...

Boom! This thing is done. Woo hoo! It only took the better part of a year...

Finish is three coats of laquer over Danish oil.

Beautiful! Is this the one from FWW?

Yup, the very one. I was worried it might look bad in walnut instead of the more historically correct QSWO, but I think I am digging the walnut.

Thanks all, I had fun building it! Good call on the signing and date wdwerker. I was thinking maybe wood burner? Hopefully it won't burst into flames (maybe need to wait a couple more weeks to be sure the lacquer is cured!).
