I made this walnut slab coffee table as an auction item for my grandsons’ school. The top is 22”x 45” and is 6/4. It’s got some nice curl on the wide end. The legs are cast iron that I found at a yard sale and painted flat black and the stretcher is walnut. 5 coats of arm-r-seal and it’s good to go. Hope it brings a couple of bucks for the school. Thanks to all for looking

great combination – I think the iron legs compliment the slab – of course the finish is just awesome

Super nice work! The finish is stunning! The iron legs go so well with the walnut. Love the entire piece! Hope your auction goes as expected.
