Dining room table: 4 spalted maple slabs, glued and finished with waterlox satin tung oil. Base is 3/4” gas pipes. Seats 8-10 and the base makes for a nice jungle gym for my toddler!

It is a very nice slab indeed!

I see its glued but did you butt joint it?

The legs, well that is some very clever use of materials, and considering the mass of the table top well thought out
The family Gym well that’s a bonus too!

Awesome! I made a series of walnut side/sofa tables with the gas pipe but I never went that complex with the joints. The contrast on the top really sets it off!

Very nice looking table ! I have always loved furniture that mixes wood and different metals and Your table design is no exception. I know you spent some time getting the plumbing fixtures just right, did you spray a finish coat on the base to prevent potential rust down the road? Once again, great work!

Yes sir, Robsshop! I started with black iron and then primed and painted with Rustoleum’s Dark Walnut in Satin… Looks pretty in the sunlight and matches the package and crate furniture around the room…

The plumbing was fun to play with… Amazing what kinds of shapes and “curves” you can come up with using a little imagination…

Thanks for reaching out!
