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.congrats,Mark DeCouwww.decoustudio.com

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

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.
