The story of the 9 different custom made side tables:
Thank you for your quick reply.
Red eucalyptus wood is quite red. We are looking more for brown and natural beige tones as on the pictures.
Thank you and kind regards,
Can they be any other shape or you'd prefer round tops?
Well I prefer round tops but they don't need to be perfectly round, they can look unperfected.
The Tables will be outside, so they have to be coated. Waxed or something similar.
I will give you the definitive order confirmation after Christmas. First, I have to get the costs approved by my client. But I am really confident that they will approve it.
When will it be ready for shipment when you can start by the end of January? And how much will shipment cost (Shipping address: Construction Site, Eichmattweg 2, 6045 Meggen, Switzerland)
Attached below is a sketch with the measurements for confirmation
Thank you for the drawing. I confirm the measurements. You are good to go!
Do you have anything to show yet?
I am so curious
Have a nice day
Do have a lovely day as well
Thank you for the pictures and videos. It ist so nice to see it from scratch. Looking forward to the final result.
Have a great day too!
Thank you for the pictures. I honestly have to say that I am not really happy with the legs of the round tablas. They look way different then the reference picture. Is there any possibility to adjust them? They have to thicker and less symmetrical. Our client will not be happy with this.
I have sent you the reference picture.
Thank you and regards,
What do you think of the three curved ones?
The placement closer to the table tops edges will be better. As similar as you can do it like on the reference picture.
About the curved ones they look fine. Maybe the edges of the tops could be les sharp, like the back of the legs. I really like the curving. I think the rest is fine.
I have sent you a picture for understanding.
Thank you for the updated version. The square table looks way better now. I like it, they are fine like that.
The bigger legs are nice too. They might be a little to big. Can you cut them more into a V-shape and less wide? The positioning right at the edge of the table top. You can carve the parts that stand out if it doesn't fit to the tops round shape. I attached some pictures for understanding.
Do you like the colors of the square stools or would you like a more antique finish to it?
In the pictures I have made the bottom part rustic so you can see and approve before we go on.
I am doing well and I hope you too.
Thank you for the new pictures. It looks very good: I like the shapes. You are good to go.
How fine would you like the final sanding to be, should it be totally smooth and remove the curving marks?
Thank you for your message. I am doing good and I hope you as well.
I am happy with the stain. The colour is perfect. Please continue...
Have a nice afternoon.
I have attached a couple of pictures and videos.
Things we have noticed, there's the end grain splits around the edges (which don't compromise on their durability) (can be filled if you'd like)
Also a couple of the patches have turned into a reddish maroon color (different parts of wood react differently to liquids) (adds onto the rustic look in my opinion)
The taller round ones are what's stacked up with the exact same progress and finishing as the smaller ones placed side by side
Let me know what you think before start on the vanishing
The tables looks very beautiful with the stain. The patches don't bother me.
The splits are fine, they don't need filling.
Thank you and best regards,
It‘s looking good!
I am doing good and I hope you too. I am happy with the results. They are good to go.
Thank you for everything and I am looking forward to look at them in real.
Please continue with the shipment.
Best regards, Jasmin
Here it goes
My Name is Noel, Local Operations manager, Kenya. I'm currently reviewing the quality of the stools, I've shared detailed photos of the stools from different angles. I hope they're as per your expectations. The photos are labeled in numbers and letters i.e. 1a, 1b...9a, 9b etc. The numbers represent the nine stools whereas the letters represent different angles of the stools.
Thank you for your message, the items are fine and ready for shipping.
Can you tell me an approximate delivery date?
Best regards, Neema Toya
