What a great table. The lines are so smooth and legs with what looks like a soft taper. Fits the room perfectly!!!!!!! One to be proud of.

A beautiful piece, nice work, John. Very subtle. Any chance of a close up of the top grain? Skip

Beautiful grain in that top and the finish is remarkable !!

skippyland, added a photo of the top. not the best shot of the top but it’s all I have…don’t have access to the table anymore.

Ken, yes the legs have a very subtle taper on outside faces.
thankyou everyone for your nice comments.

John, that’s a beautiful piece of walnut. You know, the best part of woodworking for me is really spending a great deal of time designing and milling a piece where I can only guess as to how it will end, and then, apply the finish and have that piece explode in color and grain variations right in front of me. Really nice work, John. Skip

Nice looking design and table. It is kind of difficult to find a use for those arched slabs “unless” you live in one of those dome houses.

Skip, it’s like that tree grew up knowing it’s destination or something.

I like the simple base with the subtle taper on the legs, letting the eye focus on the beautiful slab top.

Was going to ask, “which came first the wall or the table?”, but Rex beat me to it. Very nice piece. You should be proud.

Beautiful. I’ve never seen a more appropriate piece of timber to fit an unusual shape of a place. So many times we have to mill the timber to fit the place. Mother Nature sure took care of the shape this time and you took care of the timber. Well done.
