Bridget Derc's step-by-step tabletop on

Why is it that when you can’t actually get your hands on polymer for one reason or another, watching someone else complete a project is especially engrossing?

Bridget Derc's step-by-step tabletop on

We’re all on the sidelines shouting, “You go, girl” to the UK’s Bridget Derc and her complex mandala tabletop.

She took photos of every cane, every measurement, every step of the way and uploaded them to Flickr for you to enjoy vicariously.

        WOW! But now that table us RUINED for use — who could cover up or risk damaging all that work!? ;^)

          You can put a piece of glass on top and use it.

              Totally splendiferous!!! Did she keep a record of the time she spent on this masterpiece? (Days, weeks, months?) I agree with Sherry …. this is a table to be admired, not used.

                Absolutely incredible. I can’t comprehend the amount of planning that must have gone into this.
