This coffee table is upcycled from a wooden crate used to transport some scientific equipment. The top lifts up to a height suitable to work/eat at. Inside a panel conceals a small space in the bottom to hide objects in. To maintain the crate look and provide a much better surface for cleaning it is coasted with low sheen polyurethane finish.

These ribbon tables are gifts using a design from Popular Woodworking Magazine. The Wisconsin Badger table features the mascot engraved in one leg and the Marching Band logo as a mirror insert in the other leg. The Packers table has the “G” protruding from the surface. The Northwestern table Wildcat logo is engraved into the leg.
Each glass table top is frosted to a design according to the theme of each table.

This birch plywood shelf exposes the interesting layers of plywood that are finished with semi-gloss lacquer smooth to the touch. Topping the shelf is a thin band of rusted metal unique to each piece. The steel is rusted over a few days then sealed with a clear spray.
