Took on a huge commission for a local college. It was built using lumber harvested on the campus that’s been air drying for ten years. It was a real challenge working with such a large piece. And tricky figuring out the geometry. Each miter joint has seven 14×140 dominoes.

Very nice but unusual table but built for a specific purpose. Two piece idea is great, otherwise it would have been a permanent fixture in your shop.

I have a couple of questions…

1) It looks like you had plans for SHARP pointed ENDS/CORNERS then they were cut off. Was there a change?

2) Why did you put a split in the middle of a straight run and not make them at the points?

Great job by the way..
