A few years ago, a friend found some unused walnut flooring and wondered if I could use it. There was enough material for me to make three of these tables. All parts were made from the flooring except the drawer fronts. 3/4 inch stock was used there. The tapered legs were made by surfacing the back of the flooring and thus removing the grooves and gluing them up to make 1 inch stock. Each table was finished w/ a wipe on poly. He loved his table as did the people who received the other two.
