I had some cut offs from other jobs. Squared off some live edge slabs of cottonwood. The walnut is just a few pieces I’ve had left over in the cutting board piles. Sanding everything down to 220 grit and finished with a couple coats of lacquer. I know as far as technique goes this isn’t impressive. I think it’s a beautiful table though. I delivered it to the store I’m selling in and immediately had gawkers. Hopefully it sells quick. I left some of the band saw marks on the wood and also a few of my own saw marks. I know it’s a cardinal sin to woodworking, but I was playing with the design some.

Nittany, I don’t have a price on it yet. I sell through a high end consignment store. She’s going to do some research and let me know where it will fall, but she has never done me wrong before. My guess is $600+.

Looks nice! I like the way you handeled the legs and attached them to the frame. How sturdy is this piece?

Cottonwood is some of my favorite wood.
I milled a tree that fell last year and it was maybe 10’ across. I didn’t mill the main trunk but some of the larger branches. Some had a beautiful birdseye in it and the rest, just beautiful grain.

I love how it’s hard, but a very light wood and easy to work with.
It just smells bad, but take the bad with the good.

Nice work.

Woody, yes, it stinks. I feel like you can’t even wash all of the stench off some days, but the grain is so gorgeous it definitely makes up for it.
