Remember this project?
It’s my live edge black walnut table I built in the spring. It has been completed for months, I have just been working on finding a welder to make a base. It’s finally happening! Today started out buying some remnant pieces at Metal Mart, yep right in between making sack lunches and clearing out Costco I happily shopped for steel:
It was a first for me and pretty cool. I rummaged through remnants and came home with 120 pounds of 1/4″ and 3/8″ steel.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I am beholding serious beauty in that steel. This summer I found a gorgeous table base design while touring some new homes with my three-year-old.
The welder and I tweaked the design a little and he is going to start the base this week! That means in just a couple weeks I might actually have a table. The excitement is palpable. I have always wanted to try welding, but this one I’m leaving to the professionals. Have you ever welded or taken on a welding custom job? I would love to hear any comments or advice.
