What does a metal sculpture artist do when he needs a new challenge? For me, that meant creating a new line of contemporary end tables. I will now take you through my reasoning for this endeavor, the idea process, and then the actual fabrication of a finished end table.
There are a lot of steps involved in taking an end table idea from concept to reality. After the style is decided, prototypes must be built, then refined, then measured, all before starting to cut the pieces for the finished product. It is a lot of work, but that is what it takes to design and build high-end contemporary end tables.
Because they are curved on the side that extends out into the room, these tables take up less room than square or rectangular tables. They also do not have any sharp points, as square and rectangular tables do. This makes them much safer, especially in a home that has children. The sharp edges of rectangular tables are often at the head level of young children. This makes a table with a half moon shape a good choice for homes with children.
Another idea is to use tree stumps or other beautiful pieces of wood. The top surface can be sanded and polished to make a beautiful, natural surface. Alternatively, beautiful pieces of driftwood can have legs added to make a wonderful centrepiece coffee table for your room.
One of the most difficult parts of the wedding planning for many couples is the seating at the reception. Not only do you have to figure out how to arrange all of your guests, there is also the matter of the head table to be decided. Here are some of the more popular options for head tables, along with the pros and cons of each.
The first step in creating anything new is deciding on a style. I wanted something with a lot of open space that could be viewed from all angles, including the top. Inspiration comes from industrial style building elements and bridge truss structures. My interest is in the structure behind the facade. In many cases that structure looks very interesting but is seldom seen.
