@patrickmc - If he's been renting in Manhattan for 33 years it's probably rent controlled, which means he could be paying as little as $400 a month in rent (which for 1,000 sq ft in NYC is nothing - wouldn't even cover your coop fees much less your mortgage if you bought).

My husband just put up some pics and better instructions for our table on his blog: www.marybicycles.com. It's not exactly the same as the scaffolding look, but it's a very similar aesthetic.

My husband and I just made a very similar table using a long butcher block table top that we got for free off of Craigslist and 3/4" black pipe that we bought at Home Depot (they can cut it to custom lengths on site). For us, all the necessary pipe cost about $80, though it would have been $15 less if we had swapped out some parts (we liked the way flanges looked for the feet, but you could just put rubber caps over the pipe ends instead). You can't make the X like in the table shown but just do a horizontal crosspiece instead. If you can't find reclaimed wood, you could also use an Ikea wood countertop (Lagan or Numerar); I have used them before as a desk tops and they are great.
