This is a Conference Table that I made for my church. It is all Walnut. I used a traditional through, wedged, mortise and tenon joint for the stretcher. With loose tenons for the feet and supports, also I signed it with a inlayed dovetail on the bottom.

I’m usually not thrilled with sapwood in projects but this project is making me re-think my view. Very nice project design. Nice work.

Beautiful piece Matt! I love the sapwood as well and have always felt that a true craftsman is defined by his skill in joinery. This is skill.

Forgive my ignorance as I’m new. Is that a particular type of walnut? I am looking a doing a table top like that and was wondering how you get the wonderful contrast in the wood. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
