It has been quite awhile since I posted any projects. Getting old & everything takes more & more time. But I did get these 2 floating top hall tables done. The first one is black Limba and when folks see it, it makes their heads spin. It has what all we woodies love: spalt, curl, color, chatoyance, holes, bug bites and more. The other is walnut and is very elegant in person. I hope you enjoy sharing these tables with me.
both tables are about 16 wide, 30 tall and 50 long.

I always know when I see you are posting a project that there will be a treat awaiting! This time TWO beautiful treats! Both so different from each other, but equally wonderful! I don’t know which I like better – the beautiful elegance of the walnut or the exciting spalted figure of the black limba. They are going to be truly thrilled with them! What beautiful work! xo

They are beautiful and very elegant Michelle, but they aren’t …...... round…...
I know you aren’t just all about pretty circles. Just kidding around.
I love the lightness and lovely balance they exhibit …..... and the spaulted, deformed, bug eaten, abused Black Limba piece is to die for!

Paul: thanks for your comment..I spent probably 2 hours getting the 3 piece top to flow and look like 1 piece I did such a good job , a fella at a show said it couldn’t be wood, it had to be plastic. Dunno if that is good or bad :-( I can do squares too :-) :-)

WOW! How did you know that I needed a black limba hall table?!

Most excellent choice of woods and beatifully executed, not to mention that I favor the sleek and elegant lines of modern design.

Beautiful tables. I have some Black Limba but it sure doesn’t look like that, wish it did. Haven’t worked with it yet but am looking forward to it. How does it work?

ric: yes that black limba for the top, was a unique board, and I doubt I will ever see another like it in my lifetime. The rest of the table is standard limba & is very quiet. No problems working with it..maybe a tad chippy on cross cuts, but otherwise fine.

This is a beautiful piece of wood and is the perfect wood for a table like that. This is wonderful table and done very nicely.
