In expensive designer boutiques and catalogs nowyou can see a lot of original furniture in the now fashionable rustic (rastik, rustic) style. But there is a way much cheaper to get such an exclusive - do it yourself! Several basic tools, available materials and a day off - that's all you need to create your coffee table from birch logs! Why a birch tree? Of course, you can use any logs. But the birch is easy to handle, has a nice appearance, smooth texture and light colors. And most importantly - birch trees grow very fast, so you do not have to worry about harming the environment for the coffee table. In this project, 34 birchlogs, each 8-14 cm in diameter. The tree can be purchased at sawmills and in specialized shops. Also you will need: sheets of plywood for the base of the table of the desired size, joiner glue, plaster, screws, wheels, saw, screwdriver, spatula. Cut out the plywood base of the table square orrectangular. In this project, the size of the base is 84cm by 60cm. Build a plywood box with dimensions of 70cm x 46cm x 40cm. The box will be fastened in the middle of the bottom base, at a distance of 14 cm from the edges. If the dimensions of your table are different, just remember that the bottom plywood stands above the box at a distance equal to the diameter of the logs. The cover-tabletop length of 70 cm and a width of 46 cm will close the box. Attach the box with screws or glue with carpentry glue. Birch logs already prepared in advance, cleanedfrom knots and have the same length. With joiner glue we glue each log to the plywood box as shown in the photo above. For added reliability, screw the screw into the log from inside the box. Screw the cover of the box with screws. Cut a pair of logs into pieces 2-3 cm high. For such a table it took 40 pieces, and a couple more can be made by fire - stands for cups and glasses. Glue everyone to the table top with joinery glue. You can leave the countertop in this form, but you canfill the space between the fire. For this purpose, the finishing plaster for the walls of the consistency of thick sour cream is suitable. Using a spatula, apply the plaster to the countertop, and then remove the surplus from the surface of the bonfires. Allow the solution to dry. Attach the rollers to the bottom of the table. You can cover the entire table of logs with a layer of transparent polyurethane for wood. Done!
