Just a few pictures of a walnut coffee table and dining table I made last year. The tops were the most difficult as they are built on a slight angle to give it a different look.

Well, those are beautiful pieces of furniture—those angled tops really give them a unique look!

Neat! I would never have thought to have the boards ay an angle like that. Love the look of the wide planks with a bit of sap wood still showing in some of them.

Really like that table top. Very interesting to construct with that angle.

Walnut is one of my favorite woods. I really like the angled look. Certainly sets it apart from the usual approach.

I’m curious how you dealt with the seasonal wood movement issue since the boards will likely move width wise a lot and you have the angle as well. seems like the movement could go in a lot of odd directions.

I haven’t seen any issues with seasonal movement yet. Everything was made with biscuit joints and edge glued. Then the top was secured to the base with pocket hole screws. Here’s to hoping it never moves!
