So basically i am creating a dining table for restaurants where there is a storage inside the table and the top part can be extended to make a wider table for 4 people to eat.

I’m having problems with what materials i should use. It needs to be waterproof as well as strong but i am on a tight budget as we have to pay for the materials ourselves.

I have some images of the CAD design i’ve made and i split then into 6 parts

Bottom part of the table
Top part of the table
Metal table runners
Extension component

I really need help with this project. Please feel free to send me any advice to me as i need to get an A!

Two people doing exactly the same project?
“Ah strange fish!”

I don’t know how it works in the US, but aren’t you supposed to do the thing yourself?
I’d understand if you wanted help with some specific detail, but you’ve said nothing about anything and simply asked the good people of LJ to tell you how to do it!

There’s a reason you never see extending tables in restaurants with storage underneath like the way you have it.
Spills and crumbs and cleaning.
Also, what kind of restaurant are we talking?

Have your say...
