We finally finished this project – took about a year from concept to delivery – it was a challenge for us! Our friends at Washington Roofing built a new office and asked us to build their conference table. They have a unique conference room – they have a copper roof inside the room to illustrate their abilities to potential clients. I designed the table to incorporate copper throughout. The table is arts and crafts style with slats. In between each slat we put smaller copper slats. The base is angled so the copper catches light as you move around the table. The top is OGDF and is ~ 2 ½” thick, 10’+ long and 5’+ wide. We estimate it weighs 550 lbs.
We built a “memory box/time capsule” and filled it with various sundries. The owner has two young boys who no-doubt will find it someday when they are man enough to lift off the top. We put in a note on how the table was built and by whom, a fine bottle of wine, 10 silver dollars, bourbon, a German prayer sheet and various other items we thought whoever opens it would enjoy. This was a great project for great friends – always the best kind.
