Remember our friend Jason's project with Urban Tree Forge? Well, they've been busy again. This time for the G-20 economic summit at the Phipps Conservatory. Urban Tree Forge was asked to create 12 oak slab tabletops for a dinner and discussion at the summit. And they had just two weeks to make it happen....
Fortunatly, when Urban Tree Forge's owner and founder, John Metzler, was approached by the Phipps about the project, the trees pictured above had just happened to come out of the kiln. So the team at Urban Tree Forge was able to set right to work.
He continues: "It was a great experience, and it is pretty cool to think that i was part of making 12 tables that some of the most important people in the world had a meal at."
