A coffee table I am wrapping up in the next few day. This all walnut my son and I cut and slabbed. The top was two pieces jointed by hand. I have left the legs and shelf with the natural edge. Due to the abuse the top could take I squared top and rounded over the edges. I love these type projects.

A great looking project. I like it. There are a couple things that I can’t quite figure out from the photos:

1) Are the two sections of the top splined together? (I see a light colored rectangle on the end of the top.)

2) Is the bottom shelf one big tenon into the legs?

Had to look at this again and went and zoomed it in for a better look.
That really showed off the table and all it’s great details.

Yes I used a spline to connect the two pieces for the top.

And yes they are big tenon into the legs. That was the worst part of the project. One of those thing if I were to do it again would be done a lot different.

BTW thanks guys for the comments. One of those pieces I’m not sure I want to sell it yet or what I would charge.

Beautiful job. The top is 2”?
I just finished removing trees for a friend-and now I have about 2k bf of walnut that I can’t wait to be dry. Most of it is one inch thick, but I have a couple dozen thicker slabs.
Also-do you do anything to preserve the natural edges-the bark?

Have your say...
