A fellow LJer dropped off a few planks of Walnut. I used the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up ( in my head) to design and build a small table out of just the Walnut. Even have 1/2 of a plank left over!
Top is 4/4 by 40”long, and 14” wide. From the top of the top to the floor, it stands at 19-1/4” tall.

Two coats of Poly Gloss, followed by a coat of O’sullivan’s Oil Finish. The shelf needed a couple of “caps” on the ends, as the Sketch-up “Plan” came out a bit too short. Used the cut offs from two of the legs to make the caps. Had to resaw the caps to size.

Took a while. it was a fun project to do….daughter sees this…she MIGHT “Table-nap” it to her house…

Hope you enjoy this little table.

I can only agree with Monte, it is certainly well engineered.
A general comment:
It dosent look dark enough to be walnut? but the consruction blogs show it dark odd?

Looks great Bandit. It sure is worthy of the design being table-napped at least !

That turned out just extra nice! The shaping on the legs really makes it unique.

She turned out great, Bandit! The finish looks great, the walnut is beautiful, and the curvy legs are very fine!

Your Single Cell SU ROCKS, Bandit!! The finish really makes the details in this design shine. Definitely table napping material. Thanks for sharing.

-- God bless, Candy
