I wanted to design a one of a kind coffee table, elegant and functional that could fill an empty room with its character.
I was keen to experience what it would be like to craft something of this size by hand without modern access to power tools to appreciate old techniques. Relying on hand tools actually worked out well for the minimal noise they generate. It meant I was able to work on the table into the night without worry of being a nuisance to neighbours.
The wheels are not cut in a perfect circle so they come to rest on some flatter sections of the wheel and this works out really well so I didn't have a runaway table!
