Exhibitions: If you're a professional preparing to hold an exhibition to advertise your business or an organisation, a trestle table is a must. They are easily transported to wherever your location is, and because they are capable of holding a spread of up to 300kg, your display can be as spectacular as you can possibly make it, ensuring that it catches the eye of any passer by. It is also ideal for car boot sales, allowing you to make money on the bits and bobs that you no longer use.
Another idea is to use tree stumps or other beautiful pieces of wood. The top surface can be sanded and polished to make a beautiful, natural surface. Alternatively, beautiful pieces of driftwood can have legs added to make a wonderful centrepiece coffee table for your room.
One of the most common things to use in place of a coffee table is old packing cases from early last century. Often these were used to transport tea or other foodstuffs and many still have the original labelling upon them, faded by age. These can make a stylish and surprisingly convenient coffee table and can often be picked up fairly cheaply from antiques centres and fairs. Not only do they make good surfaces they also have a lot of storage space to hide away items that you do not want on display.
This table is usually placed in the living room near a sofa and it gives the room a nice, organized look. Some of the small items that people like to store on are TV and other home theater remote controls, magazines and even small sewing supplies or pens, etc. The functionality can be easily increased by adding a small cabinet just underneath it so that it can now easily store drink bottles as well. Pouring the drink and serving it has become just that much easier with such a table!
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 folding trestle table is so handy to own. Once you do, you'll wonder how you ever coped without one. So, what exactly can you do with your trestle table? Here are a few ideas.
