3 years ago I cut down a Walnut tree in San Antonio, had it sawed into 2” planks, then stacked it for 3 years to dry. My wife wanted a nice natural wood table for the dining area so I had a project.
I used the bookmarked center boards and wanted to leave the stubs where the branches went. I filled the center with one of the outer boards from the stack. That was fun matching it in.
Use hand planes then belt sander to get it flat. Used Poly finish to protect it.
The frame is made of some Maple that I had. Stained it to match the Walnut color.
I will use another board to make a matching bench to go by the window.
This was my very first furniture making attempt.
