The concept of the table is at some places it is not possible to put chairs for space reasons..
here this table is used …a table which is used for standing and eating ..

The table joints are also shown just to give the idea how to make table more strong..

Pictures look like they were taken in a typical Asian furniture warehouse. Just like the one I used to be a VP at in Shanghai. Stacks of ready to ship furniture, waiting for containers. Am I right?

And by the way, your joints really are poor. If I built that in my shop, I’d never sell it. Nice wood, though.

@Tennessee this product is under evaluation.. joints are strong enough…by the way this is paneling …the wood planks are slides in between Outer frame… the the outer frame is joined usning BISCUIT JOINT CONCEPT

” If I built that in my shop, I’d never sell it. ” if you can built with such craftsmanship..INDIAN EXPORT IN USA ITSELF IS 2.5 BILLION USD per year it will go down to 0 . because people around world we come to your place not to India…

Well, now we at least know what area of the world Ramesh lives in, and I was thinking about this over lunch, I was almost dead on. See my further comments in xy’s posting I’ll be putting up soon over in Forums.
By the way, Ramesh, you are right about Chinese plywood, it is junk! But at least it does not make your nose bleed like the Russian stuff.

And I was a VP of Operations for an American furniture company with a cut and sew operation, plus total assembly line for shipment to European countries, from September 2005, through December 2006. Jackson Catnapper Furniture. See them at www.jacksonfurnind.com. I know what the inside of a co-op Asian furniture warehouse looks like, and I recognized your pants in the one picture – you can’t get real Levi’s, too expensive, so like most Asian workers, you settle for the thinner dark blue rayon pants that sort of look like Levi’s. Seen them a thousand times.
But if you are serious about your furniture, first dump the reference name to Sarvodaya and call yourself Ramesh, or some name that fits you better.
And we’ll help you as we can.

Well… if you look at his profile, the whole thing is a sales pitch, lifted right off the Sarvodaya website.
He is also listed as the main sales guy, along with his wife on the website. What I cannot decide is that three piece table sitting in a dirt floor almost empty shop. And the quality of the furniture on the website, while not totally good, is much better than what he has posted here, save for the painted stuff. It’s strange, and almost makes me think he is not exactly what he says he is.
And I always hope the best for these struggling people.

After follwoing all of the discussion, Here is my honest thoughts on the piece.

1. A standing table! A great idea, I actually have a spot on my back patio that something like this would be great for.

2. The wood itself is beautiful. I like that you left the sapwood for contrast.

3. I like the shape of the base/feet.

4. If I were to build one of these for myself, I would like the top to be solid and not paneled with the spaces between slats.

5. How is the center post attached to the base and top? Mortise and Tennon?

I also like the idea of a standing table, but would probably agree that if it were for me I’d rather a solid top. Here at the office I work at we have tall tables with bar height chairs in the break room, and I often find myself just standing and leaning against it instead (I sit all day long….)

The wood is also gorgeous… almost a shame that’s just a concept…

@HawkDriver..

thank you for you kind reply… 4. i kept open space because it will make cleaning more easily for example if something spilled on top so for cleaning just with cloth it can be cleaned well..with normal straight top it looks just like a normal table..also i tried to save glue…

5. yes, Mortise and Tennon way..in india we call it chal and chul style ..reads funny..
