Please forgive my naivete if the answer is obvious--my tiki collecting has been limited to mugs, mixology tomes, and SHAG prints!

But, it's time to get creative! I have a concept for a tiki coffeetable base, to be topped with a glass oval top. The base should ideally be 17"-21" high, and about 12" in diameter.

Your ideas are much appreciated!

Check out Monkeyman's ottomans. I could easily see something similar as a table base...

Here's a coffee table I did several years back. It is one of 3 dolphin coffee tables
This table was 6' long by 3 ' wide. An oval of 3/4 glass Would one of these work??

Okay, I'm relaxed, pulling myself together - getting my deal together now. It just took a little time, but now I'm cool. Really - it's all cool now....
