This thing speaks for itself with its amazing figure, i just love this stuff. Just about every bit of a Big Leaf Maple tree has figure in it. This Burl was 32” in Diameter, and a finished 5/4 thickness.

Theres not much to explain other than it took a lot of work to get it flat and perfect.

Formsby’s tung oil is THE BEST stuff for any Burl wood, hands down.
Osmo-Polyx, and Rubio Mono-Coat are runners up.

There was an underside arch that spanned between the legs, all mortised together and also mounted with Kreg fasteners…

That’s a beautiful table, well done. Did you flatten it with a router jig?
