Ivar shelving comes alive as Enzo Mari dining table

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.”
