Walnut/Maple Hallway Table


Recommended Posts

Figure 8’s should work as you have them shown. I would have used a Forstner bit to recess them into the legs. Each figure 8 has a recessed bevel on each side to receive a tapered wood screw. From the pic, you have it reversed. If after recessing the figure 8 and flipping it over, and the screw still pokes thru, get a shorter screw.

Assuming your rails are 3/4" (or close to it) they should fit fine.

yes they are and they did 🙂 ... good to know though for the future when I need to use these

I did recess them, its just a really weird looking picture ... that is actually sitting flush with the top, although it looks like it is just sitting on top haha.

The problem with using those is where they are, the rabbeted wood is only about 1/4 thick so I would need a tiny screw for that and not sure how well it would actually hold

Looks great!  Would really like to see the whole table.  From the little I can see, I am not sure about frosting the glass.  I really like the clear glass look.

I'll second the questioning of the frosted glass..  Some form of "frosted pattern" in the glass would be cool though!    Something to match or tie in with what you've done with the accent woods..

Yea, I think I would do a frosted pattern that would create lines across the class that connected you maple inlays.

That would work..  Or some sort of "animal" type pattern in some weeds where the weeds tie into the inlays..  etc....

If you do decide to do a pattern (which I think would be very cool) I would etch the glass instead of frosting.  Etching is permanent and easy to do with a template.  I etched a 6 pane door as my first attempt and it was very easy.  This is the product I used.  Glass etching

Man, that looks great. Did you decide to leave the glass clear? Can’t tell from the last pic. 

yes  I went with a film topping as it had a cool pattern  however it was put on only with water and static?? I’m not sure how well it will hold up. I wouldn’t recommend the film on it either and I won’t use it again. It was easy to install and everything I just don’t think it is going to last long and not bubble. 
 

A couple other pics… it was super hard to get the texture from the film in picture
