I built this table for Summers Woodworking contest. I used an old ratty 2×4 stud from a demolition project. I milled enough pieces from the one 2×4 for 2 of these tables, but have only had time to complete the first so far.

I have been thinking about my design tendencies lately and wanted to break out of the mold a bit with this one. I usually build tables with a structural apron that secures the top, but I decided to try to make the top structural in this case instead. I like the fragility this gives to its aesthetic in contrast to the roughness of the finish/patina and the strength of the bolts holding it together. In the future I plan to do a sturdy bench with a similar design to this.

I actually posted this video in a project entry, but then found out that only blog entries tagged with ‘video’ would make it to the video page of LJ’s. I wonder why that is? Hopefully it is not a faux pas to post the video again here.

I’m not sure, but, I think if you tagged “video” in your project, it would go into the video page. Don’t quote me on that tho.

I thought so as well but it only works with blog posts for some reason!
