I actually started this table a couple years ago when I cut the slab from a large walnut log I acquired. The other slabs have long been sold. I left it air dry for probably a year or more and then finished drying it in my solar kiln. Then I was sitting in my shop for awhile before I finally go around to finishing it. The slab started out 3” thick then planned down to 2 7/16 inches thick. All checks and any bark inclusions were filled with West Systems epoxy mixed with sanding dust to color it. After everything was filled it was sanded to 100 grit up to 1200 grit. (going through 8 different grits) Then it was finished with several coats of Odies Oil. I fabricated the custom steel base in my Dad’s metal working shop that I work at and then got it powder coated a flat textured black.
