is based on bringing other’s ideas to life. I get to know my clients to understand what they want. It’s imperative that the final result is a special piece that they couldn’t get anywhere else.
Ping Pong Table
OBJECTIVE: 2 separate clients, one in New York City, the other in Nantucket, MA each desired a unique ping pong table that could also double as a large table/game table.
The New York client was the initial client, and the Nantucket client wanted a slightly modified version of the initial design.
SPECIFICATIONS: The design parameters of the project were to create a unique, custom ping pong table that could be used as a regulation sized ping pong table with regulation nets and paddles, but could also be pretty enough to be used as a dining table or game table in a very visible part of the client’s home. It was to be made with unique shapes and veneers to be a showstopping piece.
- Baltic birch plywood was used for the table top and its structure.
- Bendable 1/8” plywood was used for the base and was layered up into 1” thick curves.
- The wooden net is made of alternating veneers of Paduak and either oak or maple.
- The Nantucket table has custom made paddles made of birch plywood covered in Paduak and curly maple veneers.
“Alan created a unique custom ping pong table for my home. We discussed the design at great length until the perfect solution was realized. The final result is absolutely beautiful and blends into my decor seamlessly.
Alan was very conscientious of keeping me informed and even hand delivered it from Georgia to my New York home.”
