Another dining table was made by the make it extreme team using the combination of metal and wood as the previous time.

Step 1: FRAME

First, we made and designed a metallic framework which was relatively simple, nice and ergonomic. Our framework shapes a frame around the wood that is 6cm wide while the legs that support the frame are 80 x 80mm wide and 69cm long. Therefore, the table is 75cm tall.

Step 2: Legs Connected

The four legs of our dining table are connected with two triangles at the bottom side and these triangles are connected with a square tube. The reason making these triangles besides the fact that is aesthetically prettier is also functional as the triangles gives the potential to another two persons to sit on the table and be able to touch their feet down.

Step 3: Wood - Olive Tree

Moreover, the wooden surface that was placed on the top part of the frame, was made by a branch of an olive tree that was cut in wood. After processing and cleaning the wood from weeds, we conglutinated each piece of wood with the other in order to make a surface with dimensions of 90cm x 190cm. We would like to say that the wood that was used for our table is olive tree because of its unbelievable beauty. Also, the spots that were empty resulted by the frames of the tree, were filled with epoxy resin.

Step 4: Video

Finally, it is a time consuming construction and we should say that some complications and difficulties might arise in every stage of making it. However, this does not mean that it was not an important, constructive experience providing us much knowledge and pleasure.

    Awesome design! Did you do anything to account for the wood movement when building your steel frame? Is there any gap between the top and the frame?
