Here is a piece I recently finished on a “spec” basis in my free time between client jobs. This is all 8/4” thick wood (Walnut and Birdseye Maple) and the main pieces are 11” deep. Overall length is 56”.
The Maple has a bit of a live edge along both sides, and some good heartwood color. This wood is a full 8/4”, so cutting the 45 degree beveled edge was a challenge. I used my Festool TS 75 and it did a nice job, but it couldn’t have cut a thicker piece.
This is finished with Osmo Polyx Oil and hand rubbed paste wax.
One of my next projects may be up to 3” deep (Jatoba), and I’m not sure how I’m going to bevel cut that (any thoughts are welcome!!!).
