I had a curved walnut log sawn several years ago and used the lumber to make several of these coffee tables (two different tables shown). Great looking planks with lots of character. Some small burls on the outside , cracks and great color.

Thanks for looking

Wonderful design, a great way to take an what could be considered an imperfect board and turn it into a perfect piece.

Thanks for all the kind remarks. I have 3 pieces left from this tree that may used for the same design or maybe a new inspiration will hit me.
