My wife had bought two new armchairs in front of the fireplace, and now she needed a new table. She couldn’t get the wright shape in any furniture shop, so I had to walk down in the basement and look for some suitable wood. I found some walnut I had bought some years ago. After a few weeks the table was ready for our livingroom. The finish is BLO with tree layers of Liberon Finishing Oil.

it sets the room off nicely,
and goes with the chairs realy well .

wood to make the ends the same , huh ? (lol)
but it looks good anyway .

The curves, the finish, the grain…. this table really has it all. Great piece of work!

The understated design lets the wood and craftsmanship do all the talking. Elegant simplicty, seems almost ‘scandinavian’. (that’s a compliment)
