I don't think a primer is necessary as long as you rub the entire frame down well with some fine steel wool.... I would definitely go with the all surface paint, it will hold up better.
nice work, I have used that same paint on a few projects. It has a cool look.
Great idea, and it looks cool
Really cool design.

that's a good idea
I normally would have painted or stained something like the frame before assembly. But, I was concerned about having glue run off when I clamped the framework on. And it did run out a bit. I was able to wipe it off and sand it down before applying the india ink. Having 2 separate finishes on a table top was tricky to figure out.
The guy I made it for was putting it on new carpet in a newly built home. Otherwise, I would have left them adjustable. I knew it would be a really flat and forgiving surface.
Thank You. It was very tricky to get it level. I added a little super glue to the pipe threads when I get them just right.
Thank you, I bought it on ebay for around 5 or 6 bucks. They also sell it on Amazon and in alot of craft stores.
This was my first experience with pipe, If I had access to a threader I might have done it like that too. I just bought a bunch of random sizes hoping I could make it work for the base dimensions. It didn't work perfectly, but It came together eventually. Thanks for the feedback. Chad
