Giant Tables first move

Last weekend we moved the pieces of our giant table to our home workshop. It’s in prep for the next step, which is to resin the table top. It took two teams of guys, a crane and a big flatbed truck to load the wooden table tops, and then the metal frame, and offload it all again. The giant table is now resting in its spot in the new workshop, waiting for us to work out how to seal the…

Resin and Letters

Some of our current projects are in various stages of completion. Like Sean’s latest side table made from motorcyle parts, which lent itself to a resin finish, is now, well, finished! We poured the last resin layer on the weekend, with Jasper our jack russell watching intently, and now we can list it in our shop. In the theme of practice for our giant table resin pour, we’re also revamping this little wooden tray that Sean’s mother originally made as…

Happy New Year!

Here’s to a fabulous and wonder-ful new year! (That’s our giant table we’re saying ‘cheers!’ from, with the other piece that maybe one day we will also make into a table, behind us!) We have had some delays over the festive season with getting our friend’s truck to move our giant table to the new workshop, for us to do the resin part. So hopefully by the end of January that will take place. In the meantime, we have started…

Our makeshift spray-booth

We’ve had a few weeks of organising and strategising, and most excitingly learning AND rebranding! Yes, we are working on our brand, and aim to launch our new look and logo soon! Plus we sent Sean to a course to learn more about resin – as it’s still our vision for our giant table, to encase our old wood table top in some epoxy resin. This will give a glass finish and modern twist, encapsulating the weathered looking wood to…

It’s built!

This weekend Sean bolted on the wooden legs, and we finished building the frame. We then managed to put the whole giant table together to get a glimpse! And WOW! It is big and bold and beautiful! We went from this: to this: The last phase is to paint the frame, and add resin to the wooden top to preserve it, and give it a glass finish! We sanded the metal frame, and so it’s prepped now, ready for us…

Giant Table’s Frame- an update

The frame for our giant table is taking shape. We started this project a few months ago. Then we found legs – some wood beams that we are cleaning and shaping to add to our frame. And we spent some time cleaning and looking at and trying to decide what to do with the table top – the main feature of this giant table. Our last visit was mostly to finish the welding on the frame, where Sean added some…

The top of our Giant Table

We turned over the table top on our most recent session working on our giant table. It was exciting, and left us staring at it for a while, discussing what we could do about the few splintering bits, and what, if anything, to put on top. Resin? Or glass? If you recall, the wood is meranti, and it is from an old prototype of a table used in the mines, and had been sitting outside the old engineering factory for…
