We have been working on a series of tables that combine wood tops with metal bases like the one in the works above. I try to use an interesting piece or pieces of wood for the tops of the tables and my older son Sam makes the metal for the bases. This coffee table top is a 40” wide ‘cutoff’ left over from the the formal 40” x 84” dining table shown. The curly redwood table top is a ‘ripoff ’ ( ‘ripoff’ = new word meaning denoting a piece left over from a wider board) from a 28” wide coffee table we made last year. There were 641 growth rings in that redwood slab.
