Building Noguchi Coffee Table

Aug 15th

Noguchi coffee table was drawn in 1944 by Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi, chairman of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It has been manufactured under exclusive license since 1948 by the Herman Miller Company.  If you are a Woodworker who would like to try it, you can try to catch the breath in the original used similar material to create your own artwork. Make a final fine grinding and finish your wood with a good ebony lacquer or clear coat. Refit. You cannot have Noguchi but you have something in the abstract spirit of the work. The beauty of the drama depends largely on the interest and skill of finishing on these pieces.

Merge your material you need a piece of coarse-glass glass, shaped in a kind of coiled triangle with one side of fifty-two inches. For the base you need Noguchi coffee table of wood, each about one inch and three quarter thick. Each of them should be about thirty six inches tall and sixteen inches tall. To join the base, find a hardwood plug and a matching (very sharp) drill for the ledge assembly. Shape your wood. The original Herman Miller production line includes birch, walnut and cherry. Today the tables are made of varnished, walnut and cherry finishes. The seven and a half inch long “arches” are hacking on mouse objects just at breaks on the outer curves.

Connect your ready base. Drill tap holes just where the top of the curve breaks and turns down at the shorter ends. One long side down and the other down, with the smooth side up. The manufacturer sells new PINs and dummies, so you can be wise to make more handsome if your table needs a replacement. Drought fits your Noguchi coffee table. Open bases almost seventy to eighty degrees so that the base supports the glass properly. Check the beginning to make sure the tabletop is the level. If not, your two bases are not identical. Wipe again and check with a water pass.
