This table is a two piece top using consecutive elm slabs. Table measures 6’ long x 38wide (middle) x 29 high. delivered table and 2 benches (sorry no photo…..ran out of time ) to the client the day before Thanksgiving . The finish is a mix of varnish, blo, and turp. Walnut and elm butterflies in one upright. Thanks for looking.

John, this is a beautiful table. I used to think that elm was suitable only for firewood but after seeing projects like this I have come to appreciate the color and grain that it has. I am sure your client loved the table.

Absolutely beautiful in its simplicity: I love the structural solutions used and its aesthetic. Because of a personal craze relating to desktops, the only thing that disturbs me is a little sensation of its “excesive” heaviness. But I know that’s my problem, not your desk one’s. Congratulations one more time for this project

AGM , It is a table , not a desk : )
I would agree with your point of view if it were actually a desk , but I do believe that it makes for a ruggedly handsome table being “excessive”. Have a great day : )

Wonderful table and great design. I have some big slabs of myrtle wood I was thinking of building something very similar.
