here's an interesting table that left our shop for california today. it's 52" x 126", and is based on a table we made a few years back. my client took the photo of the original table from my blog, (the second image), and photoshopped it to suit his space, and then sent us the resulting image. from that, we made a new cad drawing and sam crafted 10 'earthquake handles' for under the top. the client lives on a fault line and wants his guests to have something to hold onto in the event of a 'big one'. it will be crowded under there, but i think they'll be safe. lots more pictures of the build process, template process, cad drawings and other details on my dorset custom furniture blog.
