Made this for a relative to match an antique she owned. Solid air-dried walnut I had milled and dried for 2 years. Mortise & tenon joinery. Secondary wood is pine. Oil rubbed finish.

nice work. Did you turn your own legs for this project? I’m a big fan of air-dried walnut however it is used. I bet you build some nice homes if you can do detail work as nice as this.

Yes, I turned the legs myself. You are right, there is a huge difference, I think, between air-dried and kiln- dried walnut.

I also use a lot of air-dried walnut. I love the wide variety of colors from brown to purple. I think steaming it to blend the colors should be a prosecutable offense.

Nice work Sawdust.

The way the sunlight reflects off the table (3rd pic) is a great show of your art work. Great job on your table.
