Suburban table story

Posted on July 18, 2010


My folks have one of those aluminium + glass table sets: y’know the obligatory one that goes with any pergola or backyard area which have emerged in the last few years.. I never liked the thing – i can’t put anything heavy on the glass top and its usually shrouded in a big tarp over the table chairs and all. Its a big useless thing for most of the time.

Perhaps I cursed it with my mind. One day when the cover happened to be off and no-one was home: some serious hail took care of the tempered glass. When I came over next time we eventually devised a way to replace it with a single plywood sheet with a linseed oil finish. Worked out pretty well in the end. Exxcellent..
