Lovely commission this week to make a small table for a basin to sit on in a bathroom.
The work is to be painted so decided on tulip wood to make the table. Such a lovely easy wood to work with and also great because it takes a painted finish so well.
I love making something like this where I get to take a few raw boards of wood and turn it into something beautiful. The heartwood also looks amazing on tulip although it can be very green at times!
I laminated the 50mm legs from two pieces to help keep them stable. The tops were jointed together using my domino.
I made the top and the shelf removable as I have no idea what the plumber will need to do to it and it's better if he can do that rather than butcher the piece!
I loved making this and it's not very often I get to make something freestanding rather than fitted.
What was the last freestanding thing you made?
