In this tutorial, we will see how to make this table with beads. We will also learn how to do a frame for the tabletop and then fill it with flat right angle weave.
Cubic Right Angle Weave – Legs and table frame
Joining Cubic Right Angle Weave – Joining legs to body
Flat Right Angle Weave – Table top
There are two methods for doing this table.
Lets get started shall we? Make 4 legs with cubic right angle weave. Leave a tail so you can use this while attaching the legs to the tabletop.
Then weave a flat sheet using the right angle weave stitch. It will resemble this sheet below.
This will be the table top. Join the table top to the 4 legs. But this won’t be as sturdy as the second method.
So lets make it a little different and challenging.
Make 4 legs and a frame with cubic right angle weave. This makes the edge strong and gives the table top a sturdy look.
Frame is ready.
Now we can fill it with regular right angle weave stitch forming boxes (with 4 beads each).
It need not be a boring single color table top.
You can scribble a quick pattern on paper and start filling the frame from one side.
You can also go one full circle around the frame as you close the gap from all four sides.
Since the frame of the table top is made with cubic right angle weave stitch and the middle portion is made with right angle weave stitch, there will be a difference in thickness like shown below.
Now we have to attach all the 4 legs.
This has to be done just like we attach regular cubic right angle weave (meaning all 4 sides of the leg has to be attached to the table top).
The inner side will be slightly more difficult than the other 3 sides.
Table is ready. If the legs are wobbly, reinforce the legs with toothpicks.
