Upgraded table signs made easy
A client, an exclusive restaurant, needed new Reserved signs for the tables in the restaurant. I scribbled a quick drawing and sent it to them. They loved the idea.
The brass knob was a standard cabinet pull, and the wood trim was a stock molding from the lumberyard. I cut the blanks from .063 matte black aluminum on my bandsaw, then drilled the holes for the knob and screws for the wood trim before bending it. I hand planed the wood trim to match the angle of the bent aluminum so that it would sit flush on the table.
