I have had a pair of Portholes for years and decided to make
something with them. I made two tables. They are a matched set. The Portholes are now display cases for small
treasures that have been Beachcombed over the years. The Porthole is placed to one side so that there is room for a
lamp or whatever. The wood is White Pine, the stretcher beneath is covered with a French Grapevine braid. The
measurements are 36" x 22" and it stands 21" high. The top is a "Golden Rectangle" a shape most pleasing
to the eye.
The Porthole has a false botton and opens up to become a display case for
small Beachcombed treasures like Sea Beans, small Fishing Floats, Seashells and Fossils.
