The first one sold within the first three weeks and I like this one even better. I still have around six more 3-1/4” slabs left with the same shape and figure. I will probably mill them in half to make two tabletops each. This one is 2” thick, 4 feet long and 16” tall. The graft line is not a prominent as the last one.

Well done! I like it when someone is creative enough to recognize and use wood in it’s more natural form. But, I admit, there’s some more-processed pieces I also like. I run a sawmill and am familiar with the walnut grafts found more commonly on the left coast. But I would like to see the piece you used to make that third leg.

Wow they are beautiful.. really beautiful!
Your creativity in making the legs or in making use the natural shape of woods in more realisltic sense is something I could not imagine.

Take care and work safe.

This has natural Watco oil and that’s all.

The bottom is a nice live edge and I will see about getting better photos.

Nice Job, Ron. Don’t forget the strings and the pickups, and you’ll be ready to play.

Ok now I am mad, you stole my idea, but made it happen before I did :) Nice work, I was in Luchenbach, TX listening to some pickers one night (alot of nights) and after the third beer it hit me…. :)

Good Job…I hope you are doing well my friend ?
