Second version of my sutherland table design.
This one is intended to be reminiscent of the industrial revolution; girders and brick.

It’s in Paduak, Walnut and White Oak.

48” x 48” square @ 29” high. Closed dimensions are 9” x 59”.

The only way this is possible without it self destructing is thanks to epoxy! 100% covered two coats. 2 coats Polyurethane, then finished with satin lacquer.

This is an exceptionally well done piece. It’s a design I have not seen before and the workmanship is superb.

I’ll be curious to see how well the Padauk holds its color. It tends to turn brown over time. However, with this piece I am not sure that will be a bad thing. I think it will still look great.

This has to be a very heavy table – but that, IMO, is a good thing.

Great table! What kind of epoxy did you use? A assume the epoxy will keep the top from self destructing because it blocks out all the moisture that would lead to wood movement. Is that correct? That was my reasoning for coating this bar: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/45436 Have you seen this to be true over time?

Very nice. I like the fact that you thought of a theme and came up with a design to suit.

Thanks, all! Yes, the epoxy prevents all moisture movement and makes these opposing-grain glue-ups that I do possible.

Rich, it’s not as heavy as it looks. Top is down to 11/16.
