Shadow- box table
January 25, 2015
I was asked if I could make a table as display for a ‘flag’, glass on top, coffee table height.
It would look terrible if I just make a table with four legs box on top- glass -red flag shining through, I started to look in books for ideas, when my eye felt on low stools with cushions on top, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Great that’s it.
I used ash it had a soft roze color in it, it fitted well with the red flag.
The stands are three heavy pieces of ash, cross-slotted together no screws not glued.
I gave it adjustable feet to make sure it will be stable on any floor.
The frame is screwed into inserts on 6 points easy to take apart.
For the Finnish I made two mixtures, first linseed oil /raw tung oil/ urethane varnish semi gloss, add that four times. Than a mixture of linseed/ raw tung oil and two hands shredded bees wax warmed up. Very very nice that is what Sam Maloof uses on his beautiful chairs.
