This bad boy was a while in the making, as I worked on it between other projects.
The top is about 4ft at its longest and about 30” at the widest. The apron is made from 5/4ths walnut and the legs from 12/4ths walnut. The apron is assembled with 45 degree miters and the legs were notched out to support it fully. The top is full of spalting, but also wormholes, many going right through the top. I used West’s epoxy system to fill the holes and while it wasn’t cheap it worked really well. I finished the whole piece in General Finishes endurovar semi gloss. To be honest the build was pretty simple, so I don’t have a lot to say. My goal was to let the maple speak for itself. The pics don’t show much of the build, because there isn’t much to show. I tried to focus on the nicer parts of the maple and show where the epoxy did it’s thing.
Hope you all like, any and all comments welcome!
