Hello fellow www’ers. Been away for a while (Not at her Majesty’s pleasure I hasten to add). Been away from woodworking too but now have the need to fill my empty house with stuff I want to make, beginning with this pair of rustic-ish side tables which can be put side by side on a Saturday night before the Indian takeaway arrives.
The thing that makes me happiest about this project (?) Is that I can put my Tandoori mixed grill on the left, chicken biryani on the right, pickle tray and poppadoms in the middle when they are placed together.
All made from pine, I finally found a shade of Fiddes Hard Wax Oil I like – “Light Oak” – it has a much warmer tone than the “Antique” and goes well with my floor.
I am pleased with how they turned out considering there was no drawing involved, just used a tape and stopped when it got to “that should be about right”. Still to come with matching details and finishes, bookcase, sideboard and tv unit.
Doing the best I can with what I've got
