This table started from a the metal base i found from a neighbor that had thrown it out. It was 80’s looking with a gold coating. I assume it had had glass inserts in the middle. I removed all the coating and used a grinder to give it a brushed look. I then sprayed the metal with satin lacquer.

The wood inserts are walnut from old pallets. My dad had found them at his work about 30 years ago, and then they sat waiting for a use. Each one was distinctly different from one another in grain and color. All of them were between 3-6 ” wide and about 4’ long. There is epoxy between the cracks of the wood. The finish on the wood is satin lacquer.

really cool table. The table tops you made look great. I like the apparent randomness of the various pieces for each top.

thats some good upcycling, interesting and super practical.
The tops may not split because of the small sections

I love the modern aesthetic and I LOVE this table! What a great repurposing of both metal and wood!

You have a great vision for furniture. Somehow I think you may have more projects and thoughts to share, I implore you to post them

I had a wooden table with glass just like this I had bought 17 yrs ago loved that table. Yours is great, well done.

Nicely done. Great walnut pattern, gives the table a lot of class. I may try to make one of this in the future.
