These are 4 tables that were built alone with the one Conference table. The Break Room tables were 96” x 40”. The tops were 1 1/2” thick, edge in maple and covered with laminate.

The laminate is Wilsonart Mountain Passage.
Mountain Passage from Wilsonart

I made the base a little different then on the Conference table. Instead of using a raised panel, I just framed it out with some molding. Can you tell the difference? I like it just as well. We completed these in May 2012

Here are some building pictures:

They look great.

I would imagine quite heavy as well.

We have one supplier of Formica/Laminate in Scotland

and they are a 4 hour drive away. :(

Very heavy! Just the top was almost two full sheets of plywood. It is not built up on the edges either, full 1 1/2”. I thought about using MDF. Glad I didn’t.
