Made this a few days ago. Going to sell it here in Tulsa. Hopefully someone around my city likes it.
It’s all wood I found in dumpsters around town, except a couple pieces I had laying around from previous project.
It was fun to make.

Interesting to say the least. I’ll be the first to ask….I know you glued the boards together on the top, but what is supporting the top? Is there a piece of glass under the boards is did you run a 2X6 through the ends.

I did not glue the boards together on top. In fact, if you pull hard enough they will just come right up. They are simply nailed to the board beneath them which runs all the way through. Unless you put a moderate amount of weight on the very tip of a board, it won’t really budge. But that’s part of the design, I mean not everyone will like that about the table. I didn’t use any glue, mainly because I like the idea of the table being easily taken apart or shifted, not permanent.

The top reminds me of a bridge… in some way. If someone wanted to protect the top boards from ‘tilting’, they can always add a glass top.

Eye catching to say the least! I’m usually not a big fan of negative space but you pulled it off. I really like this piece.

Thanks everyone! I agree that the negative space is pretty weird, and many people I have shown just can’t imagine using the table without spilling something. But I still think there is a good amount of top space to set stuff on. And yeah if someone wants to put a glass piece on top that would be great as well.
