I just finished this table recently. I have had the curved steel angle iron in my shop for quite some time now and had been thinking of a way to use them in a table. They where left over form another job we did I knew I loved the shape of them but a designed escaped me. Flash forward about a year, when I was out at my favorite mill when I picked up these 2 qrt. sawn white oak slabs. From the moment I got them back the ideas began to flow. I also have a few hundred bf of some old oak barn wood in my shop a incorporated that into the design. The top is made of two 17” x 2” x 8’6” long white oak slabs. The base is 4”x3”x1/4” steel angle. The wood in the base is hand carved reclaimed barn wood and the bolts are 1 1/4” all thread with mild steel nuts. I still have enough of the curved angle to do another table that I designed while I built this one. Now I just need to sell this beast so I can buy the wood for the next one. Enjoy and thank you for looking.
