I have 6 days left before I start on my trip to the USA, so I am very pressed for time, here are a few photos, once I am back I will do a proper tutorial on how to make the tables.
I mounted the table top blanks on a scrap piece of wood with a hole drilled into the center to fit the pin on my drill press.
Dishing out the center, I start in the center and work outwards until the circle is as big as I want.
Cutting the table top free after the inside edge was rounded with a ball cutter.
I use grinding stones with sandpaper stuck to the bottom to sand the table tops by hand, there is quite a few marks left from the cutters that needs removing and the round shapes of the stones are perfect for fitting into the round edge.
The back of the table with the braces glued on, the braces have two holes drilled right through for tiny screws that holds the table top to the birdcage. My hubby made the spring loaded catch that locks the top into place for serving tea. The birdcage can turn 360 degrees around the table post.
View from the front, the table still needs oiling to finish it.
With one of the chairs that also still needs a few finishing touches.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Tessie was Right! - Tessie won this one. I made the bolster pillows for her "chair" this morning... If it were the right size, I would be fighting her for it. It really does...
