I want pieces to work for customers so I try to give options. The otherside of the oak finish is a white wash. It creates a totally different look.
Eventually there will be two more finish options, because concealed inside this stool, side table is another shelf with storage space inside. The shelf and the top can be swapped out so you have up to four different looks in this one piece. I need to finalize the final two colors so if you have any suggestions let me know.
I don't know if you can tell from the pictures, but this actually a steel pipe I claimed from the scrap heap. He is all there, tipping the scaled around 90 lbs. I was concerned that customers would always be calling me needing my muscles to move this guy around, so I put it on casters. Even with his girth and low profile he glides gracefully across the floor.
After talking to a couple of people who saw my last table on the blog and then in person it was apparent that the scale of the piece was not translating across cyber space. People thought it was a lot bigger than it was. So to prevent any confusion I added an object everyone should be familiar with, this #7 cow vertebrae, so you can accurately judge the size of this piece.
Hope you have a great weekend, let me know what you think of this piece and if you have any suggestions/request on possible colors or finishes.
UPDATE- Here's a new top I've put on the stool. It's a cross section of a stump. Kara loves it.
