The missus is jonesing for a copper top dining room table. She picked out an inexpensive table on craigslist that his 88" x 42" and comes with two 20" leaves. She'd like to make this a home project.
It seems copper is sold in 3' x 10' sheets. That's way too narrow. Is 16oz. copper thick enough? A gutter supply place sells a sheet for $166 + 25 shipping. I'm not a particularly handy guy but have a good buddy who is.
So, any advice re: how to do this and not spend a fortune?
