The Mackenrow Table is the Ideal Dining Room/Ping Pong Table Hybrid

Woodworker Jory Brigham rose to fame via Spike TV’s Framework competition, where he competed against other woodworkers to build beautiful pieces of functional furniture.

Although he had a reputation of building exceptional pieces prior to the show, perhaps his most interesting one came during the show: the Mackenrow table.

“I came up with the whole idea in a few hours,” he says. “The Danish weave (in the netting) was something I had been messing with a little bit.”

That’s certainly one of the more unique pieces of the all-walnut table. The table is 60” W x 30” H x 108” D, with an added bonus – a removable net. The dimensions make it ideal for a dinner table, which many of its buyers are using it for as well. The weave was something he worked with before in seating that could slot into just about any bar setting. The pieces work together nicely.

Brigham says the table has appealed mostly to bachelors looking for something highly unique to place in their pads. What they get is an all-California table that starts in the forest as Claro Walnut and comes to life in Brigham’s Orange-country workshop.

As for its playability, it plays as well as you’d expect a $12,500 ping pong table to play.

“We got lucky,” Brigham says. “Professionals say its one of the best surfaces they’ve played on because the density of the wood is ideal.”

The Mackenrow continues Brigham’s tradition of hand-made furniture, which also includes a shuffleboard table. Both tables definitely reach back to mid-century architecture and design, while offering a modern update with angles and lines that definitely ready it for the urban living and dining room.

And as for paddles, we’ve got you covered there, too.

The Mackenrow is available as a custom order now through Brigham’s site. It retails for $12,500.
