This conference table is made from a 16’ set of bookmatched black walnut. It rests on a 3” square stock, stainless steel base. The metal was lightly textured with an angle grinder to knock the shine down. The walnut slabs had large cracks on the ends. I had to keep the slabs as long as possible, so they were stitched up with mahogany butterflies and filled with tinted epoxy. The top was finished out at 1 1/8” thick to balance the size with the base. It is finished with polyurethane which was then wet sanded thru 4000 grit, to give it a nice soft luster.

Thanks for looking!
