Inner frame of the base made from basic dressing pine wood.
Each section on the outer side on the base has been wood lathe and cut in half too support the coffee table base!
Between the base and the top is a bracket attached to the top, so the top won’t slide off the base.
Top section “tribal horse head” made from the English Elm wood or called the Dutch elm in USA. The 26 pieces of the horse head was cut out on the bandsaw, filed by hand and sanded by hand. Horse head is placed between 2 pieces of glass at 6mm thickness.
Tall of table 42 cm’s / 16.5 inches, length 96 cm/s / 37.5 inches and wideness 65 cm’s / 25 inches and finished in a few clear coats of vanish!
