Tables

This is an update of my earlier post (now removed) which was called ‘The guitar table’.
Dining table made by Craig Bingham, 2002

Dining table: 1650 x 1650 x 770 mm. Seats eight comfortably or twelve at a pinch. Hand-made of recycled timber (ironbark or similar eucalypt top and sides with rosewood border, oregon legs, pine bracing, brass screws, iron angle brackets, polyurethane coating. Underneath I have written ‘Made by Craig Bingham. First used Christmas 2002’. This table is hard, strong, square and awkwardly beautiful, like my hope.

Guitar table (guitar, turned table legs, collage of modernist art [Kandinsky, Klimt], acrylic paint). I created this guitar table some time in the early 1990s. As a guitar, it makes a great table, and vice versa. I thought it could perhaps be emblematic of this blog, as it is beautiful, unique and only strangely functional.

When I set up this blog, I had a welcome page that said: “Congratulations on reaching one of the internet’s hidden places. This is like finding a beautiful island and having it all to yourself.” Two years later, this is still true.

Read on to find out more about these tables and for a list of my favourite fiction pieces from this blog.

  1. I laughed out loud at “.. still true.”
