Built for a client in Los Angeles, this rustic/industrial table is approximately 30 inches tall and 42 inches in diameter. Table top is 1-1/2- inches thick and is made from reclaimed, old growth (100+ year old) 2×4s from Rebuilding Exchange in Chicago. Base is made from construction-grade (L) three-quarter inch copper pipe.

I used the Rockler circle jig and a Bosch router to cut the circle. I liked this method a lot more than using a jigsaw.

Base features adjustable steel cap feet for easy leveling. Table top can be removed from base with a screwdriver.

Table is stained with a clear Old Master stain and finished with multiple coats of polyurethane.
