These two end tables are a pair to love! Simple in appearance but quite complicated to make. At first glance they look as if their bases are made of metal. However, the bases are actually made with MDF (medium density fiberboard) and flex plywood and finished with a special painted glaze finish. The tops are veneered with zebra wood and finished with a light stain and top coated with lacquer.
The jig work to capture the necessary elliptical curvature of the tables’ “legs” was fairly involved and required a high degree of precision. Matthew, Randy and Robbie created a form on which to press the bending grade plywood with canvas straps. 24 hours later the shape was set and it was time to assemble everything together.
