HISTORY

This table was created around the idea of recycling.I wanted to show that even though society is becoming "waste aware," there is still the idea that we can dispose of waste without actually knowing what become of our old products, like computers. I had two computer cases that I had "rescued" and as they were the same size and shape, I thought they would make great legs for a coffee table.

My brother-in-law who had the Elm said he waned to see what the Elm would look like finished in wax.

Oh, and I also had some old copper pipe.

Inspired by "The Salvager" of TV fame I set about constructing the - Computer Coffee Table.

 

SPECIFICATIONS

Length: 1200mm (4 feet)

Width: 760mm (2 feet 6 inches)

SPECIES

Scottish Elm and Oak

 

JOINT STRUCTURE

The table top is two large slabs of Elm. There is a gap between them so they don't have to be the same shape. They are dowelled together using the 22mm copper pipe (polished). All sanded and waxed.

The legs as mentioned are two computer cases.

I lined the cases with Oak boards to hide the unsightly edges of the cases, the boards are fixed using concealed pocket screws and slots.

 

FINISHING

This Unit has been waxed and polished and will gradually darken when left in a bright room.
