This contemporary table was one I built for fun. It’s made from a reclaimed white oak “door buck” (threshold) from a stack we have at the yard. It’s 3” thick and 24”x24”. The cube is a 24”x24”x24” steel frame I welded and then had chrome dipped. It’s a very simple design. I like having all the old mortises from the door buck showing. I had to rip the door buck and then laminate it to itself, cutting around some of the more weathered areas. Then I sanded down the surface and glue joints and applied a tinted lacquer finish. Turned out nice.
