metal tables

part 2
 לא תעשון אתי אלוהי כסף      

The Chasam Sofer (Toras Moshe Parshas Yisro) 
writes (based on a Tosfos Yoma 54b):

 " Because we  hold that wooden tables would be Posul in the  Bais Hamikdosh therefore we may make and have 
wooden tables in our homes.
Since all metal tables regardless of size shape or type 
of metal are kosher B'dieved in the Bais Hamikdash,
therefore all metal tables may not be made for
personal use."

The Chasam Sofer continues that he sees no Heter for the 
Matzoh bakery to have copper (metal) tables.

Most commercial kitchens of today, even in Frum Mosdos have stainless steel tables.

Some have lawn furniture with metal tables.

According to the Chasam Sofer there is no Heter for it.

The Darkei Teshuva (Y.D. 141-8) argues on the  Chasam Sofer. He writes that we find  the Gemoro (Shabbos119a) 
Reb Chiya b Aba praised the Ba’al Habayis who brought in 
l’kovod Shabbos a golden table. Had it been assur to 
make, he would not have praised him.
