Large wicker picnic hampers can also work in this way too, although they do not provide a very uniform top surface. They do though look stylish, particularly when aged.
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.
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.
A table of this variety is a great to place in areas where you have limited room or where people will be walking, such as hallways or main rooms. Because of their shape, they create the illusion that they extend from the wall, forming a natural smooth curve. This makes them attractive to the eye and can add a flow of vision and movement to a room.
The first step in creating anything new is deciding on a style. I wanted something with a lot of open space that could be viewed from all angles, including the top. Inspiration comes from industrial style building elements and bridge truss structures. My interest is in the structure behind the facade. In many cases that structure looks very interesting but is seldom seen.
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.
