    Railway sleeper top and steel frame table that I built recently. Forgot to take more pictures as I was going but you'll get the idea.

    Just bought a house and so I'm looking to make loads more soon.

    Forgot to cut the bolts before taking the photo and the missus put all the pretty stuff on it before I could take a photo.

    How did you attach the sleepers to the frame?

    I welded a 100 x 5 piece of flatbar the length of the legs on the inside of the legs, flush with the top. That flat bar had holes drilled into it so that each sleeper has 2 carriage screws screwed into it from the underneath. I was going to put a tapped Bush into the sleepers and bolt them, but as its just so heavy I thought I'd go for the heavy duty option. What you cant see also is there is another bar the same as the one going across the bottom at the top of the legs.

    That looks lovely - must weigh a ton though!

    It's ridiculously heavy. Strong joists needed!

    I was thinking of something like that for my dinning room, it looks great. Are they oak sleepers that you used?

    That’s a heavy duty table. :cool:
    I saw something very similar on the web a few years back, selling for crazy money, so I built my own version using construction timber and angle iron. :D

    It fitted well in our big old Spanish style house overseas, but is really too big here in the U.K.
