Picture of HANG .10 coffee table
The HANG .10 coffee table is a think-outside-the-box expansion from the Eames/Herman Miller surfboard table's original design.

The name comes from the 2 racing stripes made of Canadian dimes and the option to hang it on the wall if you so choose.....hence the name HANG .10      Since the name is also a surfing term - it would only makes sense to shape it like a surfboard too :~)

The dimes were laid with 1 stripe having all 'heads' showing while the other stripe was showing the 'schooner'.

There is 2 keyhole slots routed in the back. This allows it to be hung on the wall if you get tired of it as a table.

I tried free online drawing software to make the ellipse to the size I was after. Once I had the correct size, I could just print out the 'tiles'. Since the printer cannot print out something this big as one sheet - it will break it down into smaller pieces called 'tiles'. Once the tiles were printed out - it was simple enough to lay them out and tape them together.

Once it was all taped together and laid out on the floor, I then cut out the elliptical surfboard shape. This is what gets used to make the wood template.

It took about 2 days to get to this stage because I never used this software before. Next time, I will use the 3 nails and string method to get my ellipse.

beautiful! mahalo!

Did you manufacture the legs or source them elsewhere?

I bought them online from CreamStreetShop. They can be found on Etsy.

Wow! this is a really nice and surprising coffee table. The surface finish looks very nice, and i definitely need to look into epoxy-raisin coating.
Thanks for putting ideas in my head! ;-) Luegg

Thank you. I'm glad to have been an inspiration. I will be doing a white one with polished pennies and copper chrome maple leafs....only problem is finding a catchy name for it....
