Making a Side Table my Own Way – Part 3 – Clock Table

Please check out Part 1 and Part 2 of this series to see how I designed and made this table.

After the table was stained, I first put vaseline in spots on the table base and legs as I describe in this post.
Then I painted with white paint on top, in a bit of a rough way, not being concerned about covering every bit of wood.  The vaseline stops the paint from getting through to the wood.  Once the paint is dry, I just rub away the vaseline and the stain shows in those parts.

Here is the underside of the table with the Z clips that I often use.  These clips are essential to allow for wood movement in the top (the clock part).  I wrote more about that here.

Here’s another view of the finished clock table:

Now, you didn’t think I’d only make just one triangular base did you?  I made another quite different table with the same base, I’ll post about it soon.

  2. What a fantastic table I did a clock table a month ago – but it's rectangle – this is just brilliant!
    Your newest follower – would love to have you come by and follow back

  3. Wow! This is amazing! You're incredible! I went all the way back to the post where you made the top and I've gotta say, I'd have NEVER done that with my router but I'm certainly going to try now! xo, Kimberly
