Diagonal Table from Wood Scraps


I looked it up and found that it's another name for a pile of scrap wood?

*whew*

Gluing in 144 little wooden, stretched pieces is tons of fun!

I'm pretty close to done though.... then I can sand and finish it. Po)

That's pretty cool! Seeing your projects really makes me want to get into woodworking. I need to get myself better setup for it though. Once I have more money. Lot of tools I need.

Thanks Red. You don't really need a ton of tools. I have a $40.00 ProTec table saw I use for most of this stuff.
My DeWalt compound miter saw and a Porter Cable router tend to do the rest for the most part.

I got all the pieces stretched nicely into place now. Here's just the middle part.

I still need to finish the edges.

That is beautiful DM!

I agree with you about doing something with the bottom. How about a frame with a wide shelf to put a few baskets in to keep hats & gloves, etc. in?

Nice work on the top though. It's pretty.

yanno, as impressed as I am with your creativeness....I'm even more impressed with your "wood shop" flooring!!...Gonna throw up a little crown moulding while you're at it?...you know, to hang some old fishing lures from? haha!! I think next weekend you should just demolish the building and build a larger one to accomodate the table...haha

It's coming out beautiful, and as for the bottom....you're on your own. I doubt there's much I can suggest that your own creativity won't solve.

I don't get it.... that's the foyer teak floor in that last picture.... crown molding?

I'm lost..... but that's nothing unusual either.....

I'm sorry, the walls in the photo look like stud walls at first glance...so I assumed it was an unfinished work room you had and you added some nice flooring that was left over from a previous job you did

oic.... ...that's birch and oak half-wall in the foyer I just finished. Po)
That side will get lots of sun, so she'll have plants all over it, of course.

don't get me wrong, it's really nice...especially the flooring....I guess that's my fault, I don't see anything like that in the northeast

I love that tabletop - I'd love my kitchen island to have that on it. A whole new look to a butcherblock. Definitely agree to do something new/different with the base.

Thanks.... yeah, I'm really racking my brain on what to do with it style-wise.
Any and all ideas considered!
