These 3 tables measure 4’x8’x 36” tall. The tops are 2” thick solid pine. They were commissioned for the grand opening of the new GoLite store on the Pearl Street mall in Boulder Colorado. They will mostly be displaying merchandise. The challenge for me was I only had 1 week to build these 3 heavy tables by myself. Oh, and I worked 45 hrs in the machine shop at my real job during the day. It was tiring, but I got them done on time and the boulderites were very happy with them, so I will most likely build 15 more for their other stores. I got to put my logo on every side of the frames for some free advertising. The finish is satin polyurethane, sadly no danish oil to bring out the colors. GoLite is a eco-friendly company, so they only wanted a water based poly for the finish, which looks ok I guess. The legs are 4”x4” square and the brackets I made from oak. I think I may hibernate for the rest of the winter after flogging it for the past week. Those bears are smart here in the rockies, not venturing out into the frozen tundra we call home. Thanks for looking!
