This is a walnut table that I was asked to build for our church. It will be used to hold the urn during a funeral mass. It had to be walnut to match all the other furniture.
The top has a 91” radius on the front as does the front apron with the cross. The cross is inlaid with turquoise and it was routed in on Randy’s, the High School shop teacher’s, CNC router . Thanks, Randy!!!!

The aprons are doweled to the legs and they pulled together with pocket screws and glue. The leg assembly is doweled to the top and joined with 8 pocket screws.

It is 16” x 20”x 30” high. The legs are 1 1/2” and tapered to 1 1/4” on two sides.

It is finished with satin polyurethane and scuff waxed.

Thanks Bob, Terry, Joe, Bambi, Bob , Steve and Charles!!
Hi Bob, this walnut is from my stash of 500 bf that I bought about 15 ys ago. I don’t so much big walnut work so it will last me a long time!

Hi Steve..That’s right. It took no lathe work. I did have a plan to mount the legs in the lathe and turn the bottom 3/8 of each leg round like a glide but let that idea pass.

Cheers, Jim

Beautiful job brother.
Hard to make anything bad out of walnut.
That is some beautiful stock too.
You have a special place cemented in Heaven waiting for you… :)

Have to remember pulling aprons together with pocket screws too.
Thanks

Very nice table Jim, agree with Eric, you will be front of the queue when you get there. That’s if the other mob hasn’t taken over. Great inlayed cross.

Wonderful work, Jim.

The inlaid cross really adds to the piece. Love the grain patterns in that walnut.

Thanks Tony, Erick, Klaus/ Lew and Bob!

Hi Eric, I cut up a long piece of 5/4 walnut to get that oval pattern on the top,

I just thought, I may be placed on there one day. I think I get busy to design the urn!

Cheers, Jim
