As you can see in the second picture, I scored HUGE on this piece of mahogany…...the guys at the resaw place were all taking photos of the slab. All biscuit, mortise and tenon, not a screw or nail in this piece (except for the pull handles), herringbone center, hand rubbed poly with wax. My design.

Love the wood, but love the design more….a good, clean craftsman feel to the table.

You did a very nice job on the coffee table. How wide was the slab of wood?

The slab was 22” wide almost 6” thick and 14’ long…...and not a single knot!....I’ll post the other table, chair and side table that came from that piece soon. Thanks.
