Today’s project started with this square “bowl”. I bought it at another yard sale. Can you see how much of a junker I am yet? I buy things others would toss and yet we have the best time using these things. So here we have a square bowl. And I have Ron who is a wizard with tools. I asked him to make a table using this bowl and some table legs we had that were shorter than
And this is what he came up with. I love it. There is a removeable piece of glass framed for the top of the table. I set the piece of coral on it so that you could see it was solid.
This would be wonderful to display vintage things that you wanted to keep little fingers from handling.
The legs were cut on a slant for the table they came off of. Ron had to cut them level first.
Look at the corners. I love the curve.
He used some scrap wood for the sides of the table, cutting them to fit. At first he mitered the corners and then decided to butt them to the legs and screw the base together.
It’s hard to see in this picture but he set the legs in place and then measured the size boards he needed. Cut the wood and attached the sides to the legs using a drill pocket jig.
He then made the frame for the glass mitering the corners and cutting a groove in each side to insert the glass. The glass won’t come out of this frame in one piece.
You can see the groove in this picture.
