Finally got to deliver and set up this beast. The entire table is made from a single flitch of 10’ long elm, base and all. It weighs in at 1500 lbs. The top is six book-matched slabs, connected onsite with mechanical fasteners. This gives the 60” x 324” top some breathing room. Pith was cut out of center slabs, which left a decorative void. Got these wonderful slabs from Good Hope Hardwoods and couldn’t be happier with how they worked. His slabs sit for 5 seasons before being kiln dried, so most all movement is negated. Thanks for looking and happy woodworking!
