Project Information

I had a lot of plywood scraps from my last project and decided to build this table.
The top is made from left over veneer.
It took about a pint of glue to put it together and a lot of shaping and sanding.

The table looks great. That is a very interesting use of plywood leftovers. Like the other comments I am amazed at how good you were able to make plywood look. Thanks for sharing your very creative work.

Fantastic work! Was all the shaping done visually with rasps/files? I'm not sure how you'd get the legs / skirt to be so symmetric. What finish did you use?

I used 3/4" euro ply and tight bond type type II glue.
I had a problem with the veneer it was pretty dried out

But 30 minutes in a warm damp towel made it less brittle.

The veneer had no paper backer just raw veneer, so i wet glued both the veneer and plywood sub straight.
I used lots of c clamps and hoped for the best..
I used the bandsaw to do most of the rough work then a disc sander, and finally files.


Thank you all for the feed back!!
