Got a hold of 5 old butcher block work benches being thrown out and a couple 80 year old fire hydrants, and the guys decided they wanted to build a table for the station. Something custom that no one else had. So we went to work :) glued 3 tables together with biscuits to hold the top flush while it dried with some cargo straps holding it together. Then we got a hold of two 7’ angle iron rods for support on the bottom and ripped the sides down to 4’6. Sanded the top down to 220 grit smooth and even. Had the local print shop print out a 36×36 Maltese cross with our station number in the middle, and painfully slowly traced it onto a sheet of veneer i had in the garage from a previous project. after cutting that out freehand, we traced the pieces on to the table one at a time. Broke out the router and chisel’s to remove the inlay area. Stained some hemlock trim for the outside, then 6 coats of it and everything really stands out. Now we have a nice centerpiece for our station. Thought i’d share it here, feedback appreciated :)
