Thread: Coffee Table for LOML

    Coffee Table for LOML

    Hi All, Just finished a coffee table for the wife and want to show it off. Its made from QS ash (from a single 12/4 plank) The accent wood is figured eucalyptus dyed red. The oil stain on the ash is a cherry blend (I mixed the colors some to get what I liked, or more importantly, what the wife liked). The top is copper, laminated on ply. My first time using copper, so it took a lot of experimentation with amonia, vinegar, and finally muratic acid I had on hand for the swiming pool, till I got the look I wanted. It's 38"x44"x19". Wish the pictures were better. Anywho, Thanks for looking. Barry

    Beautiful table Barry. I love the look of the copper, how thick is it?

    Nice job Barry. The wood choices are perfect.

    I presume LOYL is happy and we all know that if LOYL is happy everybody can be happy.

    Thanks all! Bruce, I used whats called 1 pound copper for the top. (1sq ft = 1 pound) I think it runs around .021 thick. It's plenty, any thicker would have been hard to work with. Here's the link where I got it from mail order. The local supplier I found ws a lot more expensive even after factoring shipping.
