This is wonderful. To see Ikea raw pine flesh out Enzo Mari’s Autoprogettazione table. Thanks Greg!
He says, “Almost two years ago, I had the idea to make an Autoprogettazione table [“self-project,”] designed by Enzo Mari in the early 1970s, but instead of using 1×2 pine lumber, I’d use unfinished Ikea components. Well, I finally got around to construction this summer, and finished the table last week. After surveying every piece of unfinished pine in the store, I ended up using Ivar shelving, which I varnished with a dozen or so coats of hand-rubbed tung oil.”
