This piece of furniture was designed by the fabricator. It is made from powder coated 1/4" steel plate. Inspired by steampunk photos on social media, this table was designed and fabricated for a friend's industrial-themed bar and grill. It was originally fabricated to coffee table height, but the low seating didn't fit well in the specified environment. To resolve the issue, it was removed and reinstalled with longer legs so that it may be enjoyed at pub table height. The legs are held on by ridiculously large bolts. They were so large that the fabricator didn't have a wrench big enough. How did the fabricator tighten the oversized bolts? He had to make his own wrench (using the plasma table). If you look closely, you will see the wrench in one of the photos.
