Literally, Working On A Table

Yesterday, Trevor gave us a new meaning to the phrase working on a table ... Here he is, literally, working ON THE TABLE ! And, there's plenty of room if more of us wanted to get up there and work on it with him. ... And, this is less than half of it ... 3/7ths of it to be exact. Anyway, it's coming along. Today Jim set up a temporary frame for the whole table in my garage and it looks like I will just be able to close the overhead door once the top is all in place. We feel we have to have the top with the center sections and granite templates all together at least once before we call the gentleman who is going to pick up the templates and cut the granite. Can't be too careful on this one, and it won't fit in the shop. Click the pictures to enlarge them ... Plenty more on this project later ... It's a big one ...
The far end ... The first four sections not shown here have already been fitted and edged. Here, we are cutting the templates and the preparing the center sections for veneer ..
With the end section removed and the center section of the table now in it's place ...
The temporary base in my garage with the steel tubing in place and the end caps welded on. Next, as each section is finished and the steel is primed, we'll put everything in place and bolt the table sections to the steel and they will be finished like that.

Wow, what an ambitious project. Made of granite? It's going to weigh a ton... literally. Delivering the finished product to the client seems like it will be a project in and of itself. Looking forward to watching this build!
