Well, I got the glue off the piece of agate from the clock. (Used a straight blade.) It's looking good!
One thing I have to keep in mind when planning this table is to put at least two supports on it. (We used to have a wonderful one-pedestal coffee table that was beautiful but was not safe with toddlers or pets. They could and did tip it so easily.)
So here are a few ideas:
This one has two gold coloured pedestals (formerly from trophies - long story).
This is my favourite....very organic...which I feel matches the agate top. BIG problem for me is cutting it into two pieces that work properly.
Haven't quite figured out how this would work - maybe in a rectangle? Or even in an oval? It's plastic so that might be a possibility. And maybe painted in a lighter shade of brown or even a gold? I have several pieces of it.
These napkin rings have possibilities, I think. But it's hard to tell until I take them apart and I wasn't quite ready to do that. They need about half again as much height which would work by staggering the pieces and I think I could get the height and make them small enough to do two supports without sacrificing legroom. I like the wood - think it works well with the agate.
Maybe I could do four corner supports of two blond bases and one dark support.
I could, of course, just put a regular table base on it but that doesn't appeal to me at all.
Since I have absolutely no idea where this table will end up, it doesn't much matter at this point.
Just thought I'd throw some ideas out there....
