All I can say is "What else would you expect a Les Hastings laundry table to look like?" :)

I like it, the irony is that when the piece changes hands that the next owner will work hard at trying to get the ring removed.

Reminds me of an island I just did (soon to be posted). I love the legs. Not a real "distrested" wood guy but its a neat design.

That's for your laundry room?!? Wow, I'd love to see what the furniture in the "non-utility" part of the house looks like…

Hey Les, is that a laundry table for a palace somewhere? LOL I really like the design perfect for the job and looks awesome. Nice design and turning on the legs unique and stylish. Love the color of the Hickory top too. I'm not a fan of distressing (anybodies distressing), just my preference, it always looks like it needs to be cleaned or refinished (and duh that's the point) to me….which drives me crazy (a very short trip). Even with that I think it is another fantastic piece to be proud of. Like always, the best from the best. Great piece :>)

My wife would never put something this beautiful in the laundry room. I could see her using it as a buffet table but not a folding table. Great work!!!

Les,

It's good to see you posting again. We've missed your great work. We love antiques (but prefer those that are in perfect condition as opposed to distressed), and this really has achieved the look. Your finisher has done an outstanding job as well.

It would seem to us that people who could afford such an elegant folding table wouldn't need one. They could just use things once and throw them away! ;-) . . . why worry about laundry? But, we suppose they each have their own personal laundress.

Thanks everyone for your comments!

We do a lot of building of pieces that are distressed, whole kitchens, liburaries, bathrooms and individual furniture pieces. In this area it seems to be a pretty common thing. The designers and clients request it. We just do our best to make them happy. Distressed pieces are not for everyone, but when done right they can be some pretty awesome pieces.

Thanks again!!
