Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

If there’s any doubt of the ever increasing fire loading in today’s occupancies check out these photos.

Photo 1: End table manufactured in 2009 and bought at a retail outlet that sells through a chain of big box stores. Pedestal measures 6” in diameter.

Photo 2: Pedestal was removed and a band used to remove 5” off the end in order to give the table the appropriate height. The plywood center core measures 2 ¾” x 2 ¾”. The core was centered in a mold then high density foam injected in. Once cooled it was sanded and painted a wood tone.
