Funny thing is the mahogany was donated from Katherene Heigl's house.
Anyway, with the rails on the bottom, they don't have the table resting on it.
I counter sunk the T-bolts into the wood so only the wood rests on the rubber and no aluminum rub marks.
I would love a double rail with diamond decks but it was out of my reach at that time. Next time!
