I wanted to take more progress pictures as I worked, but I found that I get
so focused on completing a step and then thinking about the next, that I
forget to take pictures.
-- What would you do different if another “commission” came your way?
First I would probably have done a mock up of the table. It ended up being
a little bit bigger than MLW expected, but was necessary to comfortably fit
4 people and the chairs side by side. We may have been able to change the
design to fix that. Otherwise everything went pretty well as planned with
no major challenges.
-- How did you decide which way to put the live edge? ‘Facing’ up for
This was a topic of much conversation. We really liked the look both
ways. With the live edge down the table took a "modern look" but offered
more table top. With the edge up it showed it off more and offered a
little bit more space for me to make the base wider, which I thought was
necessary to make sure the table wasn't unstable. Given that it is 36"
tall I was concerned with it being top heavy and tippy, if I made the base
too narrow. So after all that she landed on up.
