So called because I think it looks like a minimalist table perched on molten lava. It’s an old project but I thought it might be worth an airing
This is an EZ Mitre, Shell box (I’ll blog these constructio methods in due course)
Size : (top) 113mm square x 52mm high (pedestal base) 133mm square x 5mm high
Materials : Padauk, Ebony, Holly and Birch Ply
Glues : PVA, Spray Contact and CA
Finish : Spray Acrylic (satin finish)
At 3.5mm thick the top was too fragile so a 1.5mm Birch Ply liner was used (pic’ 4). Otherwise its solid wood construction. With a foam inner base liner and baise on the very bottom. I’ve experimented a little with glues and finishes this time. The latter because of the Padauk bleed problem with light woods.
