This solid Walnut table was a custom commission for a client in San Francisco. She wanted to avoid the super high shipping costs of having this thing crated up, so I built it as a “knock-down” table with the only assembley being the legs. She will have to screw them into the aprons. I cut deep mortises on each leg, leaving a 3/4×3/4 piece that stood alone for counter sunk screws. The two leaves are stored in walnut carriage that attaches to underside of the maple extenders. Each section of the top features brass alignment pins. This was the hardest part of the whole project! In the end they all aligned correctly, and everything worked out. The unfortunate part of this project as I wasnt able to have a chance to have a professional photograph made, I was down to the wire upon completion, oh well maybe next time! The final dimensions were 30widex30tallx103long.

Great table!! Re: Professional photos – I’m not sure how much you spend on photos but you could get yourself a Nikon D40 for about $440 and take pro photos yourself with little knowledge.
