I built these for my son's wedding reception at the request of his wonderful bride, Rachel. It's basically a 6" wide by 48" long box about 2 3/4" deep. The crown molding around the outside dictated the depth of the box and the width of the trim around the top on this set. There is a piece of 1 1/2" thick foam placed in the box for the Sterno cans and then it is topped off with black decorator stone. this was a really fun project and was a huge hit at the reception.
