Black Walnut Conference Table with Bulldozer Track Base
A conference table built for a machinery company needs to have some heft to it. Track chain paired with black walnut did the job perfectly.
We started with a book matched pair of black walnut slabs about 10 feet long and 4 sections of track chain.
Jason, our metal man, faced a bit of a task to cut the track to the right size but the end result was worth it.
We positioned the legs close to the corners of the top so there would be more space for people seated at the ends of the table and as many people as possible could sit at the sides. The tracks are 9" wide and so would eat up a lot of the available seating space if placed further from the ends.
Sometimes a base like this can overpower the top, but in this case they have found a good balance.
