This week I’ve been mainly…. Making extra long engraved signs and coffee tables.
Ive had the wood for months and the idea for over a year, to both make a coffee table and to replace the small sign I advertise myself at markets and fairs. Both pieces of wood started out being a couple of metres long and over 400mm wide. Both remain the same width but now shorter in length to suit the proportions of the engraving. Also, both have been waxed with Black Bison Wax Poish which doesn’t yellow over time and gives a nice lustre sheen. The sign has my logo on and a brief description of what I do.
The table has a quote I remember from the film and steel legs that Er’indoors chose. Basically they come in lots of different lengths and a variety of colours. Red, Yellow, Teal, Black, White, Blue Green, Stainless Steel and Unfinished (so you can paint them of the colour of your choice). You can use them to make coffee tables, stools, desks, small cabinets or whatever you desire. The wood is Walnut. More to come in the coming months.
Next week I’ll be ordering more legs, I like the black, red and unfinished colours. Whats your favourite?
