    Looks fab! Love how the metal bracket assembly ofg hte frame complements the Broder and give the whole piece an industrial look. Well done!

    I love this table but i cant seem to find broder or glulam! Does anybody know what the metal part is and the wood part?

      Broder is or was a shelving system with perforated metal panels for the shelf. Can’t see anything in the local Ikea catalogue that matches it but it was similar to Algot ( http://www.ikea.com/aa/en/catalog/products/S99932682/ ) so there may be something in that range that matches it. Glulam on the other hand is a non-Ikea product it stands for Glue Laminated and is like plywood but with larger/thicker layers and much stronger. It is basically engineered timber to provide larger sections of timber that can be made from plantation timber.

    Would it be possible to build a frame similar to this but without the beam running down the middle at the top? Ideally I would like to do this but using a custom cut glass top. I’m not sure if the cross beam would be necessary for support of the glass and the structure of the frame though. There would be beams running along both sides of the table at the top and one along the middle at the bottom. Would the glass be more susceptible to breaking without the cross beam at the top?
