The size of the table is 28” wide x 68” long x 36” tall. The base is made out of Alder with two hard maple dovetailed drawers on blumotiom soft close undermount slides. The top is made out of Hickory and is hand planed and distressed, there are hand turned Hickory pulls on the drawers. The legs are also hand turned, they are 5” in dia. at there widest point and 2 3/4” square at ther smallest point. The base has been distressed as well.

The finish is dye stains with rubbed through crackle paint and glaze. Followed by a hand applied wax.

This was fun project to build, hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for looking!

A very nice looking table, but.. how does it ‘fold?’

All I can say is “What else would you expect a Les Hastings laundry table to look like?” :-)

I like it, the irony is that when the piece changes hands that the next owner will work hard at trying to get the ring removed.

Reminds me of an island I just did (soon to be posted). I love the legs. Not a real “distrested” wood guy but its a neat design.

That’s for your laundry room?!? Wow, I’d love to see what the furniture in the “non-utility” part of the house looks like…

Hey Les, is that a laundry table for a palace somewhere? LOL I really like the design perfect for the job and looks awesome. Nice design and turning on the legs unique and stylish. Love the color of the Hickory top too. I’m not a fan of distressing (anybodies distressing), just my preference, it always looks like it needs to be cleaned or refinished (and duh that’s the point) to me….which drives me crazy (a very short trip). Even with that I think it is another fantastic piece to be proud of. Like always, the best from the best. Great piece :>)
