Nice. They're a small, Australian company that really takes pride in their work. My dad had a couple of their planes.

Hollows and rounds. I am planning to use moulding planes for door handles and such, i have designs on using a slight indent and round over on a full length door handle, these will get me there and also produce a finished surface. I ca do it with my router table, but then I must sand to finish.

I have a dovetail plane and dado plane from them which definitely count into my favourite tools. They wind up being a very good combination of what I want from a workhorse and what I would want from some of the really out there infill planes and individual machinist type plane makers.

Hi guys,

 

I'm currently in Istanbul. Interior design wise, I like very much the work of Deniz Tunc.

 

If you have any other good addresses, I'm more than willing to take them. Thanks!

Ah, yes, now that you've identified the uses, I can see the curves in the blurry foreground.

That looks like a very different style than the mock-up of your new living/dining room.

It does and I'd never adhere to the whole style but for other rooms like the entrance hall, I have wall lamps from that designer and I like it very much.

I like the look and richness of white marble but have no idea what sort of maintenance it needs...

We have a ~6 mon old boy, which means he'll be walking and spilling soon. Is it not worth the headache? Get a stopgap shitty table until he's older? As of right now we have this small inherited oak abomination that goes with nothing and looks completely out of place.

First, you can't really attach legs to marble especially large pieces of marble. You typically have to attach the marble to some sort of frame and then attache the legs to the frame. Marble is pretty fragile and large, unsupported slabs can crack under their own weight. Having said that, you can buy table frames that allow you to drop in whatever glass or stone surface you want.

Second, the price of clean pieces of marble goes up pretty steeply with size as does the cutting. So depending on the exact dimensions, the marble itself can get pretty expensive pretty quick.

note: marble is not lightweight, so make sure the legs can support it.

I have done things like this and, you're right, with a little ingenuity, it can look great. It can also be incredibly inexpensive, especially for small areas.

yeah, this square slab (which is probably 30-35" long on each side, and about 3/4" thick), was a free sample sent to the wife's old office. The Ikea table was like $9.

You win. The few times I've done this, I've gone to a cutting yard and found scrap which could be cut to fit. On a couple of occasions, while I paid for cutting and polishing, they threw the stone in for free. It still cost more than $9, though.

Hmm. Am I better off just finding a marble top table at eq3 or cb2?
post #6056 of 6056
Found a marble top table I like the other day, $30k.

Even I was like.
