Mosaic Magnificence Made Many Moons Ago. Status: Available!
Alliteration aside, this table got donated to the Goodwill down the street, followed me home and needs a new home.
Keeping it out in the cold garage just seems wrong. It needs a warm loving home!
I wonder if this was made in someones basement or garage in the 60's. It doesn't
look as if it was purchased at a furniture showroom to me. I think a lot of these
type tables were home projects. There were a lot of "back of the magazine"
projects available back then.
Couldn't you just see a father and son at the shop table cutting, gluing, arguing
about sanding and finishing? Ah, family togetherness. Not enough of that
anymore. Especially with dangerous power tools at hand.
