10 ft single slab sycamore dining table 50 ” wide . This was the first of two tables that i made from 2 16’ sycamore slabs i purchased in 2016. Anyone who has worked sycamore know that it can have a mind of its own. It did develop a little crown after i flattened it but after the second time around it decided to behave. Finish is odies oil which really made the curl figure pop

Nice table, That must have been quite an impressive tree. Sorry to see it go but now it lives on and can be enjoyed every day.

Very nice table, how many coats of oil did you use, and did you sand any of the coats into the top?

Beautiful! I’ve had some sycamore slabs drying for a couple of years now that I also plan on making a dining room table with.

Randy_Atx you will definately need to get that in a kiln. Sycamore moves like crazy. These slabs were 3 1/4 thick . I managed to get them to 2 1/2” and then had to go bsck and flatten again after that to get it to 2”
