I wanted to make a old table into a real modern sculpture. This table is actually one that was in my family dining room for years. I cut the table down into different shapes with straight sides. To have the different planes to fit together, I cut notches on each piece. I did built it piece by piece so that it was balanced. It does stand 6 ft tall and currently in my father's backyard where a vine is starting to grow over it.

I love this!  Grin It reminds me of how a family dinner used to make me feel all through my teenage years Wink But apart from that I think this is a freaky fantastic use for an old table and it has a great shape. I'd love to have this in my garden (if I had one). Very well done.

I do love that while you walk around it, it changes views.

That's one of the things I like about constructivist sculpture like this -- that it always looks slightly different depending on which angle you view it from. You've created an excellent sculpture in itself, and the fact that its history as a dining room table makes it even more interesting. The colours of the wood look great against the surrounding brick.

So glad you shared this with us!
