a steel and stone coffee table

sam finished up this steel coffee table frame last week.  it will be leaving for chicago as soon as the shippers can get here.  it started out as 40" x 40" and then, at the last minute, the size was changed to 60" x 60".  quite the change actually.  it's now a pretty big object.  18" high.  rainbow finish steel, and it will have a chicago cut stone inside the top frame.  click the photos to enlarge them ..
 here it is in process .. 1 x 3 tubing top frame;  2.5" square legs;  1 x 3 aprons and supports.
 
 the jig was 66 x 66, which took up quite a bit of real estate in sam's metal shop.

the color isn't 100% accurate here, but this picture shows the 'bolt' details requested by the client to give the piece an 'industrial' look ... works for me.

I really love the design of this furniture and also the materials that they are using. I know it can spend me a lot of money by getting a piece of this coffee table but I would like to buy this coming summer. Thanks for sharing. baxton studio chairs

Wow, that is one handsome coffee table! I love the contrast of the steel and stone. So sleek and modern!
