I want to share this table I refurbished a few months back. I received the table from my dad who had it around the house. The top was a little worn but as a whole it was in pretty good shape. Despite the rectangular shape, i couldn’t help but think the table would spectacular representing slides of human tissue cells. I thought the shapes would look delightfully abstract but still hold interest to those who same what was in the shapes.

On the table, the glomerular capsule is the largest shape and therefore the focus. The glomerulus receives blood
Is a part of the kidney and blood filtration process, which produces urine. The cells around the glomerulus are distal and proximal convoluted tubules that carry the urine to the renal papilla and eventually out of your kidney.

I used a combination of stain and acrylic paint. Then I spray polyurethanes the top for protection.

Currently the piece is for sale in Bel Air, MD at the Barely Used Consignment Shop.
