Mini Convert


My husband recently got a new toy tool...a router and more recently a router table.  He has been toying with the idea of making miniatures for profit for awhile now. The original idea was to make mini midcentury modern coffee tables. 

The first miniature he built is this awesome outdoor shower.

He used the router to make the worm holes.  There is a bench and a large planter.  It needs to be finished of course.  It will have a little sink and a towel rack too.


 Here he is using his new toy.

 This is the shape of the new mid-century coffee tables.  They will be for sale on my Etsy shop soon as will the outdoor shower.


UPDATE: 

 Here are some of the finished MCM tables that we made today.

These two have brass hairpin legs and a cool laminate top.

Still a fab laminate top with aluminum legs.

They will all be available on my Etsy shop and Ebay.  It's called the "Bob Table" after it's creator.  It will come in a rainbow of colors and patterns, some sets and book matched pairs.
