Mesquite Hall Table

We’ve been wanting to do this mesquite hall table for some time. We used two natural mesquite slabs to create the top and the middle piece. The bark was removed, leaving the natural curves. The legs are bentwood lamination and the middle piece is sandwiched between them. Since mesquite has natural cracks, we decided to take advantage of this and inlay a bowtie into one of the large cracks to add something different to the piece. This piece is approximately 5ft long and 16” wide.

To see this piece and other mesquite projects please visit our blog.

great design and a lovely piece. I’m not quite sure how it stays together, but you sure did good with it.

All I can say is, “WOW!” Great looking piece. How’d you do that bowtie design? Most of the ones I’ve seen are very straight, no curves like yours. Do you have a template or something? Thanks for sharing.
