This is one of the most beautiful walnut slabs I’ve ever had my hands on. 60”x24”. The legs are also walnut. For the finish I used 2 coats of BLO followed by 4 coats of Arm R Seal semi. Dowel joinery with cherry dowels for some contrast. Thanks for looking

That’s a beautiful slab for sure. You finished it beautifully as well. I really like the base you built for it. I see far too many hairpin legs or welded square tubing these days. Great wood calls for an awesome wooden base, and you nailed it (or doweled it…lol). Nice work.

Nice looking table. If I had this and someone put feet on it, violence would be imminent. LOL

I think this is your best table yet. The proportions and leg style are pleasing and the finish sets it all off well.

Beautiful table. I love the wooden base which accents the top really well. Like Rich, I’ve seen too many steel bases and I have grown tired of them.
