New table design

These last few days I've been attempting to design a new miniature table. By attempting I mean that I've had a ton of distractions every day and so a project that should be finished in 2 days max turned into a project for the whole week.

First I cut the cabriole legs. These are a slightly different design from my previous tables. They're more curved and a bit thinner.

The table top.... I'm still not sure if I'll leave the corners like this or if I'll do something else with them. The measurements of the top are 10cm x 7,4cm so this could easily pass for a medium sized dining table. If this one turns out ok I'll have to try a larger top, the kind for a large dining room.

And the main difference - the curved skirts. This was the first time I tried something like this and I wasn't entirely sure how it would turn out, but so far it looks great! Now I need to finish the three other sides.

Of course this will still need a lot of sanding after it'll all be fitted together permanently. But so far so good. Oh, and can you spot Tiger on the other side of the balcony? Hehehe....

And just so you can get the feeling of where I got the inspiration, it was a table very similar to this one. The legs aren't the same since I didn't really like these all that much, but other than that a great inspiration. You can find more pictures here.

Hopefully this will get finished in the next few days. Although I'm not so sure since I've finally found a job, hooray!! It's only in the afternoon but still, at least I won't have to worry about income until September, which is amazing. And I've also started writing my thesis so I'll have to see how much time is left for minis. But of course everyone needs time off, and creating miniatures is my relaxation so this blog won't be totally abandoned for the next few months.

Well, until next time!

    1. Thanks Jane :D I'm hoping it'll be even better when finished :D
      Yup, it's an ibex, an old calendar I cut up since the pictures were too pretty to throw away (silly me I know) :) We have quite a few of them in the mountains here, my dad sees them quite often since he goes hiking a lot, he even snapped some pics of them a few times :D

  2. Hola! que tengas mucha suerte con tu tesis y con tu trabajo y espero no nos abandones,la mesa te ha quedado estupenda un saludo Adriana.

  3. How pretty! I can't wait to see the finished product. I like the legs on your table much better too :)
