These are made from ash again trying to make simple and functional. Table measure is about 40*84 inces top is almost 2 inches thick and weighes too much because office was in 8th floor and elevator was too small… good exercise!! Benches are really simple just have middle one 4 inches wide board which ends I routed dovetail to support sides and top. Egde of benches is only half inch thick so they look pretty light otherwise it is one inch thick. I treated them with matt oilwax.
Also I made five cabinets with double doors for record office, those cabinets I varnished with two componet laquer. Next week I will install also same style kitchen for this same office.

Interesting design on the table – how did you attach the top to the legs? (it looks like a 1/2” x 1” spline, which may not be strong enough in a commercial environment) – I really like the way the benches “park” under the table when not in use.

The grain patterns are very pronounced. the way ash should be – it is nice to see wide boards being used, rather than thin glue boards/blocks which are so common over here.

Really nice overall design – well done Karri.

Thanks´ for all, yes I have splines there but also about 4 inches wooden triangle which support legs to the top. It´s not that visible when you situated it in legs inside corner. I like big grain patterns so making it stable I split board and clue 1 1/4 inch plywood between so there is about 3/8 inches wood in both sides
