Custom built dining table for a large family in Uptown New Orleans. Reclaimed cypress, dark walnut finish and tapered, braced legs. Design was a collaboration between the client and the builder. Underside of the table was fitted with a turnbuckle tension system for further stability and to prevent long term sagging.
96” long x 35” wide x 30” tall

Very Nice! I am working on a similar dimensioned project do you have any other details of the turnbuckle system?
