The Reel Thing

52 projects

Last July, Bob made me a wonderful cotton reel coffee table for Cornerstones. [details here] My SIL Marion said “Oh, I’d love one of those for my conservatory…can you make me one?” So I put it on the 52 projects list. Here’s mine…



And here is the one we have just completed for Marion. She and I share a birthday, so we gave it to her last week.

I love the way Bob has edged the top with his router, and I think the varnish is a better colour. My contribution was the red corduroy ‘sleeve’ Maybe we should go into business?
