That is the unfolded table with the 2 guys sitting at it. Here is another for you.

Did you make a ible for the penny floor? I would love to see how you did it!

This one is great too. Voted.

Thank! Yes, I have my penny floor on here too.

That is amazing! It looks like an ornate mirror until you unfold it. Could do this for a dining room...

Thanks for the compliment! That is were I put it. I had spend 3 months covering the floor with 30,000 pennies an didn't need a table covering up all that work. Plus we don't use a table much so it is nice to be able to put it "away". Thanks again, Cindy

I floor of pennies is even more impressive, must've been a lot of work getting the pennies and putting down (my guess) laminate over the pennies after placing them on the floor.

I made "tiles" in a cookie sheet with contact plastic, then glued them down in squares. I rolled 3 coats of polyurethane on top.
