I-Beam Dining Table by ou8nrtist2 I-Beam Dining Table by ou8nrtist2
A dining table I made from recycled I-beams for clients in New Jersey in 2011.Not sure why it didn't get uploaded then.

I love it It is awesome, one question; if the base was one piece rectangle echoing the table top would it have been too heavy? Is the base one piece or two that get bolted together?
I would love this for myself but my wife hates glass tops and blames me for all the dirt marks our table gets. Stephen its a wonderful design. Hey by the way this is Dukecrescent on a new profile with my birth name.

I recognize your icon Peter,
The base is two piece which bolts together.It could have another trestle bar but it really didn't need it as it was quite stable without it.This is a heavy table for sure,especially with the glass top,but it could work just as easily work with an old foam core door for the top...I'm a glass breaker too.I never handle the stuff.

Gotcha, I love the table your work always amazes me and I am always jealous that you have the facility to explore the work you do. And Yes! my friend you do beautiful work. I feel you need Glass to show off the beauty of the structure you made, but I think it would work with a granite top also. Funny I have been through you work and I don't dislike any piece of yours everything is beautiful and I hope some day I can display some work I have made from welding steal. Have a great night!

So.. did they have to reinforce the floor..?

I actually love the table, but think it would be much cooler with some serious Victorian Chairs. Or, as a friend of mine used to say - "You can put antique furniture in a modern house, but you can't put modern furniture in a Victorian." Or, put yet another way; I really don't like those chairs.
That fucking table kicks ass, though.

I totally agree with you about the see-through chairs,and Victorian or heavy Gothic thrones would be an interesting match.
The floor was already reinforced...

Glad I didn't have to deal with the glass...
I'm a psychic glass breaker so I can't handle it very much though I am trying more these days.Something about being tuned to the frequency of stainless steel conflicts with that of glass.At least this is my theory...LOL

Hahahaha! So you have been the one helping to install our display window in my store? 4 times it's been broke during installation! We are waiting on the 5th! :laughing: Glad we aren't paying for them!

Wow, that's a powerhouse.
Wondering why the circles? They certainly work with the 'geometric' nature of the piece. But you could just as easily have gone with a quadrilateral base that might have been even more in keeping with the linear nature of everything else? And a continuous piece at the base between the legs would have added even more structural integrity to the behemoth.

I remember liking the base you made so it's great to see the finished product in it's element.

What I'm thinking now is this. With translucent table top, translucent chairs, and who know what other types of nearly invisible furniture, I know I am NOT walking through that house at night. Perhaps that is their anti-burglar system?

Yes indeed.But because I collapsed everything in a relatively small package on a pallet it was easier to ship.
