Hi,

I bought this slab in the Berkshires at a real cool mull. It is Clark walnut 42 inches at the biggest and 2 inches thick.

The lage I bought because the wify wanted claw foots. She made a good choice. The aprons and legs are cherry.

Thoughts?

There are three cracks. One in the center. Filled it with dark red glitter. Don’t laugh. It looks good. The two other cracks near edged were sealed with epoxy. The glitter was sealed with epoxy as well

There was also some red glitter put into smaller voids as highlights.

Check the zoom pics for the top. The last pic

Lucky find, it complements your decor very well.
I am thinking I wonder how old it is?

While you are relaxing and enjoying a nice up of coffee I wonder if you could count the growth rings and report back with an estimated age please.

I’d better not look. It could cost me.

I love the combination of the traditional look on the base and the rustic look on the top of this table. It is done so nicely and shows a lot of craftsmanship.

Since you said “Thoughts?” I’m going to assume you might be interested in input. Here’s mine:

I think the slab is beautiful, but I think the design is incoherent. Kind of like a house with a tudor second story and greek revival on the ground floor.

Claw feet can work as part of a theme, and live edge/slabs can work as part of a theme, but they don’t work together.

No offense intended, just an exchange of ideas.
