I designed and made this 8ft oak kitchen table for a lady who had been looking for 2 years for something unique. She wanted something nobody else had. I came up with the idea of putting a huge stainless steel plate into the surface of the table. Now, burning hot dishes, pans etc go from the oven straight onto the table.
It took a few design iterations to get something that Susie was really happy with but when I delivered it, she absolutely loved it.
