Another scalloped edge table

Remember THIS  table:

I really LOVE the scalloped edges!  Makes for such a unique style.  Decided to make another one last week.

I think I picked up this base at the thrift store YEARS ago; and it was unfinished.  I painted it black last summer, but just could not decide how to ‘top it’.  Michael scrounged through his piles of wood and found a round top for me.  Then I had him hunt down another round piece just slightly smaller than the first one for the foundation to attach the scallops to. 

See the above link for the ‘pink parfait table’ for the complete how to’s on the scallops.  They are individually cut, freehand and individually ‘carved’ with a belt sander!  A little laborious, but SO worth it for the final result!

I would love to find more table bases to make more of this style!

  1. You have a yellow table that you were wondering what the material is. It’s called formica. Generally from the 1950’s. That one is the drop leaf version. So in essence if you were to describe it: Vintage 1950’s Yellow Formica Drop Leaf table.. Hope that helps.. Dale
