Nakashima Inspired Walnut Slab Table #3: Prepping the top

Well after many hours in my cold shop and a couple of trips to my neighbor’s cabinet shop, the table top is ready for finishing.

Went pretty good till the second cut when my saw found that 7 inch bolt that was just waiting to snag my chain. Had to resharpen a couple times but all said and done I got seven nice slabs all 3-4 inches thick. Large ones are about 36 inches on the small end to about 44 inches at the large end by 10 feet long. I will be posting on my website after awhile. Gota ge...
