Utby Bar Table serves as elegant desk

Materials: Utby Bar Table with granite top

Description: The Utby Bar Table , brown-black, stainless steel is approximately 42″ in height, just right for a bar OR a standing desk. I use it as both. To make it elegant, I went to my favorite granite fabricator and looked at the end pieces in the boneyard (these are leftovers from granite fabrication jobs), chose a granite color and size perfect for a table top. I was charged for only the fabrication labor, not the stone since was in the boneyard (toss out if no one wants it).

To ensure the right table top fabrication, I took the Utby brown table top to the fabricator, who use it as a template for cutting the stone. It just looks awesome!
