I created this Compass Table for an upcycling contest. As I wanted to get creative, I did not want to simply stain the table, so I decided to individually cut out each piece and stick it back together! I used real oak flooring panels (how appropriate!) to make a table top . I drew the pattern on the planks, that were put and then glued together and cut the shapes out one by one using a jigsaw. To create a nice look with different wood grains, I simply twisted the wooden pieces in different directions. I then glued each piece together on plywood. Once the glue was dry, I used some home made woodfiller and filled the gaps, then sanded off for hours to create a nice smooth table top. I added some letters and carved them in the table top. Then using various stains by General Finishes and some masking tape I created the lovely look. To finish off the table I used High Performance Polyurethane Water Based Top Coat in satin finish.
