In this time of the virus, and before Its warm enough to start working in my shop (garage) I've been looking at and writing about some of my favorite tables.
The one you see here I made in 2013. I found some slabs of dendritic limestone from Germany at the Denver Gem and Mineal show that were rectangular. The following year I saw some larger, irregularly shapped slabs. I didn't buy them because I though they were too expensive. My wife didn't. Judy bought hem and gave this one, and another similar slab, to me to make into tables. Naturally she claimed one of them, which we now have in our Kitchen as a side table. They both have a used whiskey barrel hoop rims and sit on 16" three rod steel hairpin legs. The one shown above was sold in 2017.
I found several larger, more spectacular, slabs of dendriic limestone from the same German quarry at the 2019 Tucson Gem and Mineral show. I'd love to make you a table using one of these slabs. The slabs are too large to fit nicely in the small area of a whiskey barell hoop rim. No worry though, I figured out how to make larger steel rims that look like used whiskey barrel hoops. And if you don't like hairpin legs, I have a vareity of steel bases to choose from.
