The latest No-Investment-In-Materials project. The top is an American Chestnut slab that was loft flooring in an old barn. I cut off the rotten ends.
Notice the half-ellipse ends of the slab. I remembered my plane geometry. Thank you Mr. Nate Lorah.
The last photo is the rough, rotten ends that I cut off.

Great work on the salvage lumber. I would really like to try a project in chestnut. Haven’t been able to score on any wood around here.

It’s a very nice table and it has a lot of character.
