Although the weather wasn't all that good, it was unusually cold for this time of year (only 10 degrees outside!) I put on four layers of warm clothes and settled on the balcony. I didn't think that miniatures could be hazardous to my health, but I've been proven otherwise. Although I don't have a fever I do feel quite bad today. But at least I got a lot done.
Ok, enough rambling, on to the interesting part.
I've decided to make another table.... I'm starting to think I'm getting a bit stuck on these.... perhaps because I figured out how to make them and they turn out good. I'm thinking about a nightstand next.....
This table has thinner cabriole legs than the dining table and is also quite smaller. It would fit perfectly in a foyer with a large bouquet of flowers on top and some mirrors on either side.... ooh, I see an idea for a roombox coming up.... maybe someday.
It still needs to be finished with oil and shellac.
And the new dining table to compare for size.
This is the table I started cutting out a few weeks ago. Now I finally got the chance to finish it.
And here are all the pieces waiting for the finishing touches, oil and a few coats of shellac. I also made two matching console tables this weekend. These still need to be sanded a bit though. And the two hanging shelves that I made a few weeks ago are also waiting to be finished. I like to have a few pieces ready so when I finally get to the shellac part I can do all of them at once instead of doing each one individually. Since I have to put on four coats of shellac it's better to have more pieces.
I think it was a very productive weekend and I actually have something to show. Now it's probably time for some new pieces.... perhaps I really should try a nightstand..... will need to hunt for ideas.
Until next time!
