Cool furniture, design objects and desiderata - Page 232

If you knew how big the mark for second hand design furniture is, you wouldn't laugh.

It was Artichoke lamps, Seven chair, CH24, Swan, Egg, Ox, Teddybear etc. etc. etc.

Almost forgot, I got 2 Bing & Grøndahl porcelain bowls for the dog at an antique store, thats going out of business the other day, $25 for both.

All other bowls I could find were ceramic and about $100-200 a bowl.

What are we looking at in the second picture, SG?

The second part is a batten for the top, I made three of those in total and they will be joined using a sliding dovetail. The reason for joining them in this fashion is that it will help to retain the top's flatness while allowing it to expand and contract without binding.

Sorry for the ugly injury, lost control of my floats. ( like a file with chisel shapes teeth).

Just picked up these bad boys for a new DR table. Smoked glass top ordered.



My transformation into Bob Guccione begins.

Interesting, have not seen this before. How did you come up with this design?
post #3477 of 3477
I've had a feeling since the beginning that I would need something to trap the joint, even a super tightly fitted joint has some movement in it. The movement is amplified at the tabletop.

This just sort of came to me in some experimenting yesterday, everything else I was coming up with was a bit 'rube Goldberg'.

I plan to trim the bottoms as well. If the contrast starts to annoy me at some point before I'm finished with the table I may replace them with white ash.
