I swore I would never work with shagbark hickory (aka the bladekiller) again because its so frikkin hard. But i found a cool small piece already surface planed at my favorite lumber place, Horigan UFP (http://horiganufp.com/) and figured I’d make an exception this one time. I’m glad i did.
As with my other hallway table I really love the contrast of the heavily figured lighter top and the darker walnut legs.

Overall size is 40” wide, 10.5” deep, and 30” tall. The table top is 1.5” thick. I used some west system epoxy (105 and 207, the special clear) to fill some gaps on the underside (pics 1 and 3), but didn’t want it to come all the way to the top. In fact, from above you can’t see the epoxy really at all. It is finished with three coats of Tried & True Varnish Oil, and one final coat of my own paste mix of beeswax and mineral oil.

Comments, constructive criticism, and helpful suggestions are always welcome.

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous design. Surprising how well the figure and curves of the top are complemented by the geometry of the legs. Well done.
