Round Table Tops
Art Builders Guild had the opportunity to design and fabricate on this project at Amethyst Coffee, including the bartop, die wall facade (steel), 24’ bench, 30” round table tops, and a custom dining table. The rustic walnut was a pleasure to work with. The knots and coloration add complexity to the build, but they also add complexity to the texture of the finished product. The die wall facade, which is 11 gage steel sheet, laser cut and broke. The breaks add a visual depth to the wall and draw the eye in to the shop. The brass inlay on the face of the bar helped bring the texture of an old diner bar top that they thought was fitting, especially on the segmented lower bar. The bench is a set of seven legs, built with bridal joints for strength, and augmented by a set of three laminated (solid walnut) slats to run along the back. The forward tilt of the back leg works with the bench up against the window wall. The dining table needed to be able to fit into the corner and still have room for walking around, so we chose an oval top (which was cut with a 2 axis jig in-shop). The legs are built with bridal and lap joints. Art Builders Guild did a bit of site work as well, such as a bit of trim work, and a sink cabinet.
