Being from Wyoming I have a passion for all things Western, Rugged, and Rustic.

Don’t tell anyone this, but I am beginning to like Sketchup. I posted in an early thread how I would rather just use pencil and paper to do my design work. After what Mot has named the “Freedom Table” I decided to try again. I actually like this approach to design. It can be easily flipped and rotated to give different vantage points. Something my pencil and paper skills lack.

So back to being a “Country Boy”. Here is my inspiration for this table:

My success in this project was defined in being able to draw various circles from the same center point on various planes. I think I achieved that goal.

This would be a weathered wood look with a glass top. Each piece of glass lays between the spokes.

The table is about 6’ 8” round and 3’ 6” tall.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like it!

Yes Scott it is. But, at branding time you need lots of room to feed the crew and they get a powerful hungry!

Then there is all those other get together’s that call for room to lay out a spread.

Have your say...
