We had the opportunity to make another dining table in order to satisfy a good friend’s request to create one for him by giving us a very beautiful piece of wood. The particular piece of wood has an irregular shape as it is a horizontal slice taken by an IROKO tree. Not only its irregular shape but also the shades of the internal tree bark make the surface of our wooden table look incredibly beautiful.

Step 1: Metallic Frames

Measuring the width from the edges of the wooden piece, we made two metallic frames of 68cm height and their width is equal to the wooden surface. For the making of this metallic framework, we used a blade of 10mm thickness and 10cm width. These two frames were connected with a metallic blade in order to have a stable base as well as a stable table. Therefore, we punctured the metallic frames in various points besides the central point so that when the wood would be screwed the table would become much more stable. The width of the table is about 85cm and its length is 240cm while its height is 75cm.

Moreover, under the metallic points that touch the ground, we placed soft floor mats in order to avoid damaging the table or the floor by its use. The final touch of our metallic framework was made after we had painted all the metallic points with wheat and then with lead.

Beautiful job, thanks for the inspiration.I am very excited to make my own dining table.
