Looks real good. I bet finding boards wide enough for you table was fun (still plenty stored in barns but, the search can be fun).

looks great but if I may give you some helpful advice Nakashima never changed woods for his butterfly patches and made them small enough to where they were almost undetected. Looks great though . I am envious of the lumber you get up there that you can collect .

I have studied Nakashimas work for the last 10 yrs. His son lined me out on how he did his butterflies, right there in the conoid studio. A bit of friendly advice…. “Never” is a really strong word. Thanks to all, Ted

You’ve made a beautiful table set. I’m always impressed with your work. Nice website as well. I’m going to build a dining table set for my own use out of birds eye elm that I cut a couple of years ago. I’ve been trying to decide what leg design to use your slab legs on this one look great. I may just scale up the benches I’ve been making and make the table just like them.
