DIY Copper Herringbone Side Table & Casual Friday Link Up

This week’s link up features a DIY for the Parade of Homes that I am working on. Casual Friday Link Up is still live, scroll down ;).

So this started out as a seat (as many of the projects for the parade home did), I just didn’t dig it, but I didn’t want to toss it….it was copper for crying out loud.

So a side table it became.

Patience, some of my favorite tools from Ryobi and one trip to Home Depot and I was good to go.
I started with pretty thick plywood, left over from my Marque letters.

Materials:
Small piece of Plywood – At least 18″ in width and 10″ in height
Three 1/2″ Copper pipes, measuring 24″
Three 1/2″ Copper Caps
Tools: Ryobi Jigsaw and Air Strike

Cut out a triangle. My measurements were 18″ across the base and 9″ up the center. I use my Ryobi Jigsaw, and it has since become my bff. for forever. and ever.
Anywho, I then cut out rectangles, 1 1/2″ across and 3″ tall. I cut out over 20 and kept the corners to fill in spots. Lining up and measuring as I went.
Slide all rectangles off, line up and flip over one by one, nailing in with my Air Strike.
After all is nailed in, run the jigsaw around the edged of the triangle, trimming away excess.
Attach copper caps by running a screw in the middle of the cap.
Dab a bit of E6000 inside the cap, insert copper pipe and let dry for 24 hours.

Topped with a small plant, winner winner chicken dinner.
