This is a set of tables that I made for a local art gallery called Preservation Framer in North Attleboro. The larger table is the design counter with a cement top. The smaller one is just for holding the mat board samples. Both are made using tiger maple for details, ply, and 4X4 stained Fir…..Douglas that it…. thanks.

You do really good work, Frank. I really like the design of that small table.

Thanks. I had never built one like that …. he wanted hidden wheels and everything. I am trying to find my style.

Thanks! I have a YouTube video of a recent project but am not familiar with this forums posting fodats. Upload files only?

Either way, I joined this forum for motivation and support. These long winter months are starting to take a toll on my….energy.

I like these. Is the top on the large one really cement? It must be very heavy?

It was poured in place…so don’t know the actual weight. I made the wood base with a plywood top, then made a set of removable walls and bracing. The cement looks like a 4” solid slab but is really just 4” on the overhanging sides then 1.5” across the top.

Essentially I made a mold for the cement top and someone else poured then acid stained it. Interesting process.

He wanted everything? He certainly got it. Holes and curves, inlays and plugs, mortise and tenons, angled aprons, box joints and high contrast woods, with even some cute shoes for the legs.
Solid and pretty, this is a visual treat that can’t help but enhance his business. A great design.
Nothing should be allowed on top of that shelf though.
