the set of Hammered Copper and Barnwood end tables to match the coffee table I made for Gus a couple years ago. These things are COOL! As usual, I hate to see them go out the door after all the detail and hard work that went into them. I DO however, have a set of prototype tops that I'll probably end up making legs for, so I can have a set myself. (the cobbler's children have no shoes, right?)
As usual, these feature mortise and tennon joinery, reclaimed pine barnwood, and hand hammered and treated copper. The finish is a natural high end antiquer's wax, used over the copper too. It will show stains and wear, to give the pieces more "livid in" character that I really like.
Hand hammering all the upholstery tacks, before fiishing. Seriously tedious.
Some of the boards still had nails in them from the original siding lives they used to live. I didn't have the heard to remove this history, so I just finished right over them. Pretty cool.
LOVE LOVE LOVE little details like these defects in the wood.
Side by side. These two are going to REALLY make the couch jealous of all the attention.
A little buffing work
Dry-fitting all the joints.
I saved all the plans, so if you decide you can't live without a set of these end tables, let me know! I'll build a complete living room set for you. Hopefully soon I'll be adding a sofa table to this line up as well, available for purchase.
Right now turnaround time on an order is a couple weeks, so get your orders in soon.
