Natural Edge Curly Walnut Slab Waterfall Coffee Table

Wood: Curly Walnut slab from West Penn Hardwoods

Finish: Teak Oil

Joinery: There are five Festool Dominos in each end

I made it as a coffee table, but it can easily function as a bench. The slab was too wide for my planer, so I used a router planning sled.

That is a beautiful table with perfect joinery/grain flow. Your shop has a nicer floor than my living room!

Came out great, well done. The figure on the walnut is amazing. What did you finish it with? Is that a studio you’re displaying/selling in?

Gorgeous! The corners and grain look fantastic – this is something I keep meaning to do, but I keep using my longer boards for other stuff.

Eek Gads man! That thing is hideous! I can’t believe you had the nerve to post something like that, yuk ;)
Just jokes, that bench is rockin’ it, very well done and the grain is amazing
Your shop floor makes me want to throw up in my mouth a bit though, why do you make me so jealous with it? That is just mean. Nice work.

Agree with everybody above. This came out beautifully. You matched the grain perfectly and the top really flows into the legs. Great job!

The finish is Teak Oil. I own an art gallery and my workshop is attached to the gallery. This is my retirement gig after 20 years in the Army.

Beautiful—may I ask how you joined the edges? Biscuits, splines—or what sort of reinforcement is in there?

Thanks for sharing your work!
