This is a table I built at work for my newly elected boss. The mayor’s old conference table was plastic laminate. So this was quite an improvement. The table tops are two pieces of plywood ( 1 pcs 1/2 birch for bottom & 1 pcs 3/4 walnut) laminated together.There is a 2” band of walnut solid stock splined and glued to the edge of the two tops. There is also a 8’ 3” radius on each end.The legs are a basic narrow plywood box with 5/8 thick frrames laminated to it. Then trim and base mold is added. The aprons fit into mortises in the 5/8 frames. They are bolted together though the box into threaded inserts in the aprons.Ther is also a small access door for the wiring for thr data port in the tables top. It was stain with a laquer based stain( heritage cherry I believe). Two coats of shelac and three to four coats of precat laquer. Hope you guys enjoy as much as the mayor is.

VERY nice job! And for the mayor? Wow, impressive! Hopefully his administration will be as good as the table you built for him. :o)
