Process for making Round Table Tops

The process is called metal spinning: a round table top starts with cutting a circular timber core from MDF or Ply and cutting a circle of metal a bit larger than the core. These parts are then bonded together. The composition is then loaded into a spinning lathe where the protruding edge of the metal is spun over the the thickness of the core. The metal is returned back under the timber by about 10mm to create a safety edge. Table top thicknesses are usually 25mm, but can be from 18mm to 50 mm. The table edge can also be formed into a bull nose or have 2 radius edges or just left square.

To compliment our metal spinning lathes we have CNC cutting and engraving capacity up to 3000mm x 1500mm and power circle cutters up to 1000mm dia.

For those interested in learning more about metal spinning Wiki has an interesting page. Metal spinning is also known as spin forming or spinning or metal turning.

For interest we spin the old fashioned beaten brass and beaten copper pub table tops using authentic hand beaten brass and copper produced by a traditional British copper smith.
