Once the overall look has been achieved, work can then begin on a finished version. Measurements must be taken and angles must be figured. There is a lot of math involved. Now each individual piece of steel can be cut and precisely fit to another. All connecting points must be hand welded and each weld must be hand ground. The last step is a chemical oxidation process to turn the steel either brown or black and then a few coats of clear paint are applied to protect the colored finish.
Probably the best place to put a small table is an entryway or foyer. Half moon tables in these locations provide the maximum amount of maneuverability while still providing significant space to put items on.
An alternative to the long rectangular head table is a "captain's table", which is also a long table, but with seating all around it instead of only on one side. This can be an excellent way to be able to accommodate the dates or spouses of your bridal party at the same table as your attendants. Some couples might not like this as well as the traditional head table, as they will not be facing their guests without an obstruction, but it does lend itself to conversation more than the long single-sided table does. Another factor to keep in mind with the captain's table is its very large size; some venues might not have a suitable place in the room for one.
How many of us have ever thought about the principles of setting a table? For the uninitiated, how you prepare a table is about nothing more than putting silverware and utensils on a table before eating, and if you are lucky, sticking a napkin under each fork. We may ask, what is so difficult or interesting about that? Yet if we stop to think about it, whenever we go to a major event, it is the way that the tables have been set that creates the look and tone of the hall.
My medium of choice has long since been steel. Steel creations are permanent and the options in their design are limitless. After years of creating wall and free-standing sculptures I recently decided to focus my creative efforts on functional sculptures in the form of contemporary end tables.
Instead of one of these tables, you could use a rectangular or square table for the same purpose. This will give you more table space, but will also extend some sharp points into the room, and will reduce the amount of remaining space in the room.
