I Made A Trip To The South Side Of St. Louis To Look At A Lane Perception Dresser That Turned Out To Be A Fail, But Got To Stop By TFA...And Actually Bought Something! Status: Project Time!
Yeeeup, I'm makin' another Cypress top table! I picked up a great little (weirdly little) table at The Future Antiques retro shop that has a neat top and a fantastic base. But the top and base don't really go scale wise...right? So a new top is in order. Just so happens....
I'm guessing that this was created as a TV table. It's top is only big enough for maybe a 29" fatback
TV and I can't think of anything else this might have been built for. Who still has a fatback TV? So,
off comes that top (to be used in another project later!) leaving us with a beautiful aluminum
(aluminium?) architectural table base.
And what better top for a strongly structural base than a big dark orange / brown fried egg? This is
another of the Cypress tops that I picked up a few months ago (I've still got TWO more!). They
really look good together don't they, just like the other I built recently. I would have dropped this off
at The Shag today but I thought I was going to pick some chairs up after a late brunch at Rooster
today, but that got put off until later today. Maybe tomorrow. We'll see.
