Well I've recieved some e-mails and a heads-up on a post over at Wood.net, so I thought it best to fill us in on where we are with Carlo's table.
We're moving along quite well. Of course video will surely follow.
Although I wish I could, I cannot work exclusively on our Mollino and it's a piece that has an exceptional story.
When Gigi and I have completed this next step, you will find that like Carlo, this piece takes you out of your woodworkers comfort zone and demands you be a "mechanic". This is a very important aspect to this build; a topic rarely discussed and one we cannot leave out.
As we discussed Carlo Mollino earlier in our episodes, this build is not about experimenting, but experiencing, and I am having a blast building this piece. The lines that emerge and the site lines that are created are sinuously beautiful. Carlo's table is not your father's Oldsmobile.
There are many ways which I have mentioned in video that this build could be completed, but to me its a 1957 Cadillac convertible, long in chrome.
I'm not going anywhere and to quote Fred Astaire, "It takes time to create something memorable".
Meet you at the saw........Neil
