I made a sculpting table!!

I am tickled pink! lol I made this table for about $30 Cdn. I thought up the idea of using a stool instead of going to the trouble of making the base. It is a good solid stool and the four legs provide a lot of support.

I cut a circle in the center of the seat of the stool to fit the pvc pipe. I drilled holes up the side of the pvc pipe and right through. The holes are 1" apart. I use a long screw to put in the holes to hold the thick dowel at the height I want it.

I tried to get a piece of dowel the exact size of the interior of the pvc but it is a bit loose so I am just going to shove a piece of scrap foam in the side to take up the slack for now. I bought a flange that the dowel perfectly fit into ... it was threaded on the inside and so the dowel just screwed into it, biting into the wood.

Next I cut a circle out of some scrap plywood for the table top and screwed it on through the four holes in the flange. Then I used my Dremel to cut the excess length of the screws off.

I was going to use a piece of plywood to place on top of the rungs to stabilize the pvc pipe but the board just wouldn't fit in there after I cut it. So I have opted to make the piece out of stiff foam instead and even then had to cut the foam in half to fit it in there. I cut a hole in the foam to feed the pvc through.

I have a lazy susan mechanism to use if I want to make the table top into a turntable. I'll have to cut another table top piece for that if I go that route. Now I just have to paint the top and I'm all finished. But knowing me... that paint job ain't gonna get done for a while!

So... that is all there is to it. I'm going to use it now for the first time to get started on my macaw parrot I want to sculpt next.
