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

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.
