    Conference Table Finished and Delivered!

    I finished up this table and delivered it to its home today, which is the pilots' lounge at a local airport. A 'thank you' goes out to all those on this board who helped out with advice regarding the laminate top. Here are the specs: 4' by 8' boat-shaped top, solid oak trestles and bent wood lamination (a first for me) on the top. Thanks for looking...Jon

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    The top came out wonderfully with the edge treatment you were going for.

    How did you do the bent wood lamination?
    Underneath it all is a poplar gridwork with extra thick "stringers" down the middle and at the points where the trestle legs attach. The outside curves of the grid were the covered with a strip of 1/4" MDF and then that was in turn covered with three strips of oak, each one laminated in place to the next one with plastic resin glue. Finished thickness was 5/8" It's a tedious process, with lots of clamping and waiting. After that the white laminate top was put on, flush trimmed and then rounded over to reveal the oak edging.

    I should add, one other slight challenge was the hand-cutting of the miters on the curved sections. Made me feel like a real Neander.

    Looks great, the pilots should have many a happy landing there for years to come!
