Built this red oak table in one 9 hr day. Didn’t have too, just did it. Laminate top made it possible. Also included the finish, but I did rub it out the next morning.

That is a neat design. And you really did a nice job on the finish. Well done.

Aside from the astonishing speed, this is a beautifully built and designed table Jeff. I’ve never seen one like it before, but I really like it a lot.

OK, great table, nice design and excellent build but:
Got pictures of the top? What finish did you use? Did you have plans? Dimensions?
I’m the curious type, like to learn as much as I can for my future projects. Thanks for showing.

The top on table was a wilsonart plastic laminate with a oak edge. The customer wanted the top to match her counter tops in her kitchen. The finish is lacquer sprayed and then rubbed out for a satin sheen. As for plans, Just started with the dimensions the customer wanted and started building. Also, there are 2 swivel castors under one end of the table as this is nested in an opening under existing counter top and pulled out when mor than 2 need to use it. thanks for all the nice comments

Sweet design, Jeff. A unique table that could work in many rooms.

I am curious about the legs, torsion box? and would love to see a shot showing the swivel casters.

Very nice project.
