  • Walnut and Metal table.

    I have had a slab of Walnut for a few years 2 1/2 in thick and after squaring it up it turned out 25 in long by 12 in wide. On it's own not worth much, so last week I had an idea of making a metal frame and making a small table out of it.
    I quite like it, so I thought some of you might get some ideas out of it. I have been a serious woodworker for many years and it is nice to be able to combine the two. I am currently making another one, larger and the joint's on this one are being done with silicone bronze, this will give a nice contrast when clear coated because the top for table is a 32 in by 12 in 2 in lump of rock maple.

      that's really sweet man. I always wanted to do some nice wood and incorporate that with some polished or brushed stainless tubing.

            Very cool.

            Another cool way to join woodwork and metalwork is to
            find discarded wood furniture and combine the good
            parts of it with metal work. I made a desk for my stepson
            that way -- we found a discarded dining room table, the
            legs were no good, but the top was decent. I built a metal
            base on which we put the top (after sanding/refinishing/etc)
