Sea House Warming Hut: Side Tables

The woodworker elves came during the night and finished the other two chairs, and added a poppy-hued piping made from three strands of cotton floss (DMC 720). That inspired me to sketch a design for two side tables, as well as think out what else might be going on.

Same materials and similar construction as the chairs. The table tops are cut from 1/4- and 1/2-inch x 1/16-inch basswood, and edged with 1/16-inch square trim.

I lost the light last night, so I got up early to photograph and finish. First table, unstained:

Stained and be-glided.

And in place ‘round the hearth:

(The fireplace is out being repainted again.)

Off now to the other side of the room my office. Many voracious pixels eagerly await my return!

    I was wondering how you were going to play up that circular area and this is very cozy. It’s a good thing you can make your own mini furniture because those side tables would be impossible to find otherwise!

      The hearth was one of the first things I did on this build because I knew I wanted some kind of stove/fireplace. And yes, I do enjoy building miniature furniture… a lot :) Thanks, Christina!

    I really like the detail of the contrasting piping on the cushions. And I really like the little curved tables. And I really, really like the glimpse into your sketchbook to see where all these wonderful ideas began. Can you tell I’m more than slightly awestruck by today’s post? Just amazing.

      I am really, really, really, really pleased you like them! Releasing sketchbook photos is kind of scary, but I’m always so fascinated to see other people’s processes that I decided to risk the reveal — the unguarded mess, ramblings, silly ideas as well as the sparks :)

    I wish the woodworker elves would visit me dagnabbit. I love that the tables follow the shape of the paved area. Nice

    Great idea on the semi-circular side tables. At first I thought you were making an entire table for the middle – kind of like a King Arthur round table of the knights.
