Instructions:

Tables

  1. Use the glue gun to glue two 10” and two 16” discs on top of each other to create one 10”x2” disc and one 16”x2” disc.
  2. Cut the 8” ball in half. To find the center of the ball, wrap a large rubber band around the middle of the ball. Hold the ball firmly with one hand and cut along side the rubber band to cut ball in half. Be sure to get a straight cut or the table will not stand straight.
  3. Lay the cut edge of both halves on the table in front of you, being sure they set flat on the table. If they wobble use a scrap piece of foam to sand smooth until they set securely on the table.
  4. Cut a small flat spot on the top, rounded side of the half balls, being sure the top flat spot is parallel to the table.
  5. Cut a small flat spot on exact opposite sides of the 6” ball being sure flat spots are parallel to each other.
  6. To assemble the table: When gluing the parts together, glue around the outside edges of each piece, leaving a 2” bare space in the center of each piece. You will be inserting the dowel down through the pieces and if there is a layer of glue its difficult to get the dowel through. Lay the 10” disc down first, glue an 8” half ball centered on top of the disc. Glue a flat side of the 6” ball centered to the top flat spot on the 8”half ball. Glue the flat spot from the other 8” half ball to the top of the 6” ball. Glue the 16” disc centered on top of the 8” half ball.
  7. Sharpen the end of the dowel with Stanley knife. Insert the end of the dowel into the bottom center of the table. Keeping the dowel running straight, use the hammer to slowly push the dowel through the parts of the table until the dowel is flush with the bottom of the table.
  8. Paint the table and let dry.
  9. Optional: To help protect the bottom disc from getting dented from little feet, you could glue on quilt batting and fabric. Cut about a 22” circle from the fabric and glue decorative trim around the edge for the table cloth.

Cube Chairs

  1. Glue quilt batting to completely cover the tops and sides of both cubes, leaving the bottoms bare.
  2. Cut out 11”x11” squares of fabric or felt.
  3. Glue the squares, right sides together, to create two cube slipcovers, let dry.
  4. Place slipcovers on cubes.
  5. Make flower shaped pillows for the chairs by cutting four flower shapes from the fabric, large enough to cover the top of the cubes. Lay two fabric flowers on the table in front of you, right side down, and cut two slightly smaller flowers from the batting to fit inside the pillow.
  6. Now lay the other two fabric flowers on top, right side up, and glue the edges of the fabric flowers together.
  7. Glue decorative trim to cover the glued seam. Stitch the buttons to the pillow on the front and back.
