SEEN IN VANCOUVER #464 | Coffee Table Top Cut To The Shape Of British Columbia

September 26, 2013 

Nearly a year ago, we published some photographs of a coffee table that had been cut to the shape of the state of California (see above). We closed the piece out with these words: “The outline of BC is similar to California’s, only ours is significantly fatter, which is to say it would make for a far more stable table. What’s more, two people could dine upon it comfortably with room for share plates and bottles of wine (Haida Gwaii would make a great hook for a dangling ice bucket). To our dearest woodworking readers, we hope one among you will give it a try. Please show us when you’re done!” Earlier this month, and unbeknownst to us (until this afternoon), local photographer Dave Delnea left a comment on the post: “We thought the same, so we made our own for the office”. Take a look below. Follow up challenge: someone do the same using cedar!
