This was my 39th table. I made it in 2014. I really enjoyed laying out the foucs stone and surrounding red Lyons sandstone. I was pleased with the design but .....I was getting tired of doing mostly round table tops using used whiskey barrel hoops for rims.
I started experimenting with various thickness of steel and finally reallized that 1/16" steel was bendable enough to easily make round, sqaure, convex, and even some convex shapes.
The proof that I didn't have to use round whiskey barrel hoops for rims was when I sucessfully made my first dinosaur track table/stool (below).
