Here's that mesquite slab after 3 coats of the home brewed wipe on finish.

Beautiful & unique piece Gene. Such character in the wood and with the added features.

We'll need pictures once the legs are done & installed. I vote for a medium gloss black...oooh, powder coat would be awesome.

Thanks, Dave. Mesquite is fun.

As to the base...who knows? But, powder coat is probably off the table...pun intended. He was talking about hair pin legs. We'll see.

That is a beautiful piece Gene.  What does it weigh?  And approx. dimensions?  And hair pin legs can be powder coated...

Thanks, Cal. 

I'm guessing it's about 8+ lbs. But, things seem to weigh more than they used to.:unsure:

It's about 17" across and 16" long. It's a tad over 2 1/2" thick. 

Kevin bends, welds and paints. Don't think he's in to powder coating...yet. but, he often surprises me.

Check with some of the local automotive body shops. Now-a-days, many have the capability to do small to medium projects. Some are equipped to do frames and body panels.

We have a few shops around here that just do powder coating.

Hey guys. Thanks for the tips on powder coating. But, it's going to be indoors, it's just an end table and, chances are, the legs or whatever, will not be too visible. 

After all, it ain't no showpiece. It is just an example of "lets not waste this hunk and, lets have some fun."

I posted that slab over on Lumberjocks. They placed it in the top three projects. They must be hard up for entrants. The only tools used were sanders, a router and chisel. One of the easiest things I've ever done. Ah well, glad they liked it.

Hmmm, I wonder, should we have some type of recognition like that here, it's a great idea. Does LJ's award you anything for being in the top three besides bragging rights?

What do you think of the idea of a dedicated department to show top projects?

How would they be picked? That seems to be one of the "sticking points" at LJ's. Many comments on why one project was picked another not.

The idea is great...on paper. No one knows how the projects on LJs are selected for the award. If it's a real known person, he/she would likely have an in box full of hate mail.

I recall one such incident that raged for weeks. Lotta hurtful comments. It got ugly.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
