What do I think? A bomb could explode around your house and this table would still remain in one piece. That is a great looking table.

Fantastic looking table! I bet you’re going to regret those edgy metal bits once you kick them a few times though.

Great table top, I’m not too keen on the metal legs though.

Thanks for the comments! This is my first wood project, other than a chess board in high school 10 years ago. Took me about 2 months working on the weekends to complete it. Ease base is 184 lbs and the table top is heavy also.

Wow, that is really amazing! My wife would dance for joy if I could finish a project in two months….it seems to take me forever :-(

Awesome table. I like how you arranged the sap wood and created a natural stripe on the sides. In the first picture I thought you laminated a different species in there.

Hopefully there are no children (or other pets) around to get injured on those bases.It’s a shame to have that beautiful wood stuck on top of a scrap heap. JMHO.Perhaps this is a very late or very early April’s Fool joke.

Beautiful table top! You might want to rethink the legs idea. Hey—why not use some more of that same awesome wood for legs? And disassemble the I-beams for woodworking buddies who need anvils. Just a thought. I do appreciate your adventurous approach to designing.

The base? I respectfully disagree with Dusty 56, though I normally admire his view on things, and say this is steam punk cool. Plus you’ll never damage it with the vacuum cleaner!And the top? Fabulous. The dowels and stripes are terrific.

The top is beautiful but IMHO, that beautiful top deserves a beautiful, heavy duty wooden trestle to support it but then, I am just not into “modern” so take this for what it’s worth.

The Metal base is not for everyone, I am happy with the project.
Thank you for comments good or bad.
