Stone Top Tables
Uplifted strength without bulk or heaviness.
Stone Top Table intends to strike a balance between heavy and light. I work with ferrous metals that are malleable, durable, strong and heavy. Metal comes from stone which is also strong and heavy, but each piece of stone can be unique with different characteristics. I looked for ways to combine a stone table top with a steel base.
Strong and light. The Stone Top Table design floats a stone top on a steel framework meant to express strength without heaviness. The table’s legs are cut and crafted from structural steel stock commonly known as “angle iron.” I used carefully finished welds at the exposed corners of the frame and I used hidden welds to join the legs to the frame. This creates a strong support with a light and uplifting appearance.
Have it made. Stone Top Tables have been commissioned to suit particular pre-selected stone tops up to 40” square, 250 lbs., and the steel bases have been made with a variety of finishes. I like to work with stone tops that have character and individuality, and I enjoy proportioning and finishing each table base to suit.
