That is a nice slab of Walnut! It makes a great looking bench.

Great looking bench Kev.

I made a short table out of a slab and it was used a lot as a bench also.

very nice table!
I love the mass and the legs are well-proportioned too (which seems to always give me trouble when working with slabs)

I have a couple of questions Kev,
1) How did you join the legs to the top?
2) What finish did you use?
3) How did you flatten the top?

I hate to pepper you with questions, but I’ve got a few slabs drying in the garage right now and I don’t want to make any rookie mistakes…

Very cool Kev. I find my eye trying to make sense of the angles on the slab. Very engaging and beautiful.

Very nice. I agree that the proportion of the legs fits the slab very well.
