do we fill the cracks? yes, no, maybe, no ... we used this one as an inspiration. we made it in 2011 and didn't fill the cracks. never had a complaint. i'm glad we left them. in the end, they were really cool and kind of sculptural.. but how do we stabilize them? how about some butterflies on the bottom of the table, like below. that worked ..
below with the legs still in the 'bright polished' phase ..
and now with the bronze patina ...
the polished cracks ... no crumbs will stick in there .
and with the reinforcing 1" tubing structure to bolster the thin slab and give it some rigidity ... that worked great . this, below, from the client
"Hi Dan, We loooooove the table. I will call you tomorrow. Just got back from beach and am wiped out. Thanks and best regards, Joanne"
all for now ...
