Dining table somewhat rustic in style yet refined in construction and finish. Features a 1” thick solid walnut top. Other elements are made out of red oak. The horizontal pieces of the leg assemblies also serve as a portion of the table top and are joined to the vertical pieces with massive bridal joints. The legs are 4” square. A top this size made of flatsawn walnut sees approx 1” of seasonal wood movement in my region. Because the leg assemblies pinch the top, all the movement had to be steered towards the middle, hence expansion joints were created in the middle of the apron pieces and in the leaf. The slides consist of extra heavy-duty drawer slides screwed to L-shaped hardwood pieces providing a very smooth operation and no sagging whatsoever. 30” high x 40” wide x 76” long. Extends to 94” long with a leaf. Finish is polymerized tung oil.
