I built this table this past summer. The main thing was that it had to be able to seat 20. The people I made the table for were not particular about looks as it is usually covered with a table cloth. The table is 12.5 feet long. It’s made poplar plywood and pine and is painted a glossy black. There are 3 pedestals that support the table.

Big table…it now costs more to feed twenty people at that table than the table cost in the first place. And if that’s not true then I’m not as funny as I thought I was.

Now they need you to build some more chairs, cuz they’re lacking seating now. LOL
