From the Woodshop

From the Woodshop: Floating Top Hall Table

I haven’t posted any new pieces by my partner John, a self-taught hobbyist woodworker, as he has been super busy with his job.

Recently he found time to work on a new woodworking piece, and has recently finished a pine floating top table. The table was originally to be used as sofa table in our basement but it came out so cool, we decided to put it in the entryway.

Here is the piece in progress in his woodshop in our basement:

Here he is staining it in the garage after he finished building it:

And finally the finished piece, now in our entryway!

I put a bowl I found last year at a second hand store with a little pillow I made on the top of the table. There are bird illustrations on the wall behind the table, so I also placed a little bird dish my friend Kathy got me and two little birds that were a favorite of John’s late wife.

With this table complete, John is now planning his next project.

      1. You bet. I saw that he responded to my posting. That’s awesome. He ought to start a blog on his woodworking. I’d bet he would get some followers that hold the same interests.

  3. Wow! I can completely understand why you’ve decided to feature this table at your entryway as it is truly a show piece. You two make a good team- he builds and you enhance its features with your choice of decorations.
