Tell us about yourself!
Truly appreciate the comment! The method you described is actually something I had just explained to my buddy who helped me make the table. I've seen it before and think it is a really cool concept. I don't think it'll work for this project, after talking with corporate (my wife) we may end up going for a stain to match the rest of the living room furniture. But I definitely have that on my "bucket list" for projects.
Yes, the pivoting arms are actually pivoting on the bolts themselves. We have washers on the outside and one in between the 2 pieces of wood to keep the friction at a minimum. We talked about actual bearings but wanted to keep this project a little simpler and with hardware I already had.
Thank you! That is what we were hoping for, not monotonous but not over the top. Thanks for reading!
Agreed. I think we have settled on a stain and it will definitely get a few good coats of poly on it!
Thank you very much!
Yes we finished with all fingers in tact! Thanks for reading!
