I started with a nice 10/4 walnut crotch slab. I went through many revisions of trying to make it look thinner, but ultimately decided to have it resawn to 6/4 and used the leftover 3/4 for a shelf. (Scott Wunder @ wunderwoods did the resaw for me and I bought the wood -one slab- for the legs from him as well)

The shape for the top went through many revisions as well. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

I may try buffing out the top – as i never have tried it before – once the lacquer cues.

wow, that is really nice. The walnut on top has some beautiful figure in it. Nice job on the leg slabs too. Really well done.

Really nice figure and like Lanaug said.

That’s some slab to resaw.. That must have been a huge band saw.

You have turned that walnut slab into a gorgeous coffee table. Excellent job on that! Such a brilliant work!
