Entertaining: If you're hosting a party, whether it's a birthday party, a summer BBQ, or even a wedding or christening, then a folding table can be used for the food. It's good to have all your drink and food in one place, allowing your guests to easily help themselves to what they want.
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.
After defining a general style for the new tables, actual designs must be created. In some cases a finished product can be fabricated from a sketch alone. That is not the case with these tables however. Prototypes have to be built based on very rough sketch concepts. The tables have to ultimately be designed three-dimensionally by actually cutting and welding steel. The rough sketches are used as a basic starting point but the overall design is not completely determined beforehand. I use the "design as you go" approach" and each table takes shape on the fly.
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.
A half moon table is a table in the shape of half of a circle or oval. Essentially it is flat on one side (the side that is usually placed against a wall), and curved on the other. They resemble, not surprisingly, a half moon. A table if this type can be made of glass, wood or any other substance. They usually range in length from two to six feet and have a width roughly twenty five to forty percent of their length.
Half-moon tables are perfect for placing against walls, especially in areas people will be moving around in. They take up less room than a rectangular, square or circular table, and are much easier to walk around than those types of table. They also have no protruding sharp points for people to walk into. You usually do not want to put a half moon table in the middle of a room because it will stand out.
