In this time of the pandemic, I use these blog posts to remind me that this time will end and I can get back to making and selling tables. Until its warm enough for me to open the garage and start making new tables I'm explaining details I remember from making some of the 150 tables over the last 10 years. This week I'm talking about a table in our living room.
I found the steel base at a local garage sale and made the 2' x 4' top of Lyons Sandstone in 2013. This was my 28th table. By then I had the techniques of rim making, stone design, and with the help of my wife Judy grouting and sealing pretty much under control.
I finished this in the fall as you can see in the picture and I intended to sell it the next summer in one of our local art markets. We brought in to our living room for 'storage'. Judy liked it so much it has not moved since.
