We are wrapping up a busy summer and have not posted for a while.

Here is a display case coffee table fresh out of the shop..

That's a "one of a kind" that somebody is going to just "have to have".

Just don't tell them you have the file and can cut more.

Neat concept!

Very nice. I would have had the glass covering the carvings tho. That would keep the dust down, and would protect them when someone spilled a drink.

Would a 4x4 cnc table size do it Scott, or is that coffee table bigger than 4' . Making a coffee table on a cnc is something I never would have thought about .
The creativity would certainly be endless

No prob, you can do it on the second one.

Not an original idea with me, by the way. First saw it done on a hand-carved desk, top too, either in Germany in the late '60s, or Thailand in the mid '70s, and likely not a new idea even then. Always thought it was a good idea.

Rick,

Using Aspire with the tiling feature you can make just about any size you want.

Remember when Scott made that 6 ft+ round sign for a city on his Shark?

this top was 48 x 24

but just as simple to make one that is 46 x 24....

could have done this on the 24" shark table as well with some Tile cuts..

Just thought of this while getting ready for bed.

Not sure if your coffee table would require tabs or such to keep the glass from shifting (one on each side, or an angle thingy on each corner) or not. The desk I saw had more flat surfaces, so the glass did not shift easily at all. I would get a piece of glass that will fit the whole top, and see if it will shift or stay put, before making any changes.

I would also get with a nearby glass shop, and see what their glass sizes are. Talk nice, and they should definitely work with you. Even the small town I live close to has a glass shop, and when I went in to see if I could get some scrap plate glass for Scary Sharp, they not only gave me some, but cut it, and didn't charge a cent. Nice people. And I was talking with the owner, not one of his crew.

Anyway, ask about sizes (they should be able to cut a large pane to sizes you want). You may have to make minor size changes to lessen waste, or may get lucky and they can cut a sheet up to sizes you can use with no waste at all.

I really like your table. I once saw a table in a shop in Bandon, OR that I really liked it was a stream bed with fish and the artist work on painting the fish looked great but it was scary expensive. It was covered by glass.
