  • Anyone built a coffee table?

    Thinking of building a coffee table out of ss. Thinking of a thin sheet of #8 finish ss glued to 3/4 plywood and with highly polished ss legs of approximately 2 1/2" tubing. Anyone done something similar or have suggestions for such a project?

      Will the top be polished also?

        That is the plan. Can't see regular use scuffing it up.

        PS. There are NO kids/pets in the house!

          Are there certain questions you're looking to get answered? If anything is slid on the top, I'm sure eventually there will be some scuffing.

            It doesn't take much to scuff a mirror finish unless it coated. Also consider the issue of where the table is placed. A glare from a window, lamp, or tv could be quite distracting.

              We make tables with #4 finish all the time. A mirror finish would show any imperfections. Is it going to be round or sq/rec?

                It would be rectangle. Haven't decided yet if I'll do it or not.
