Garden Table
The design brief for this table included a requirement for it to carry the weight not only of a barrel of ale, but also the rugby scrum trying to empty it. Additionally it had to be flexible enough to be placed on a bumpy lawn.
The skeleton of the table is a frame of 2x3 green oak sections pinned together and to flanges on the principal section with stainless steel bolts giving the required strength and flexibility.
