I built this 26” x 48” table after my wife saw a smaller version on the Woodworks show a couple of months ago. Finished it this weekend and moved into the kitchen.

I am going to build a bigger kitchen so I can have room for one of these.

That’s a great table – surely your not going to allow someone to use a knife across its surface – its far too nice for that!

I think we are all thinking that. How did you mill those legs? love the top – cutting board on the proverbial “steroids”. I am equally impressed with your shop. very nice!

Absolutely fantastic work. How did you do the details on the legs?

Do you have a gallon or two of Mineral Oil in the kitchen to keep it well lubricated?

Very nice table. It looks solid! What are the wood species you used?

Yea, what about that shop? Looks way better than mine.
