INAM conference table

Materials: 2x Numerar, 2x Moliden, red oak

Description: Asketic SF asked me with some help building a conference table for their new studio. They had already picket up two Numerar oak countertops and some Moliden steel legs from Ikea.

To turn it into a conference table, I cut three stringers from solid oak to attach the countertops together, plus a slim cross bar to run between the legs for stiffness.

After drilling holes and fastening with a few dozen wood screws, we got a very solid final result.

    Hi, where did you get the steel legs from? Any resources in southern California?

    I just constructed this table, but is bouncing when I push from the long side. It is solid when i push from the short side. Any idea how to stop this bouncing ?

  3. Sarah says:

    Did you use some sort of glue up/joining technique between the boards other than the stringers?

    One thing you could is get a simple fabricated metal wrapper for the bottom cross-piece. In light gauge stainless it would probably be about $75.

    would the table be sturdy enough without the cross beam on the floor? I really like the table, but i am not the biggest fan of that beam since it does not match the metal..

    Thanks for all the comments!

    Michelle – the cross-piece is attached to the legs, after pre-drilling through the steel, using 2.5in long wood screws.
