one of my guys drove these two claro walnut tables and 8 of our ladderback chairs to the eastern end of long island last thursday and friday. they are part of the series of slab top dining and coffee tables we have made over the last 3 or 4 years. the slabs are all from goodhope hardwoods in pennsylvania and we fabricate the metal and wood bases in our shop. the ladderback chairs go well the slab tables and the whole idea is sort of minimalist in concept. surprisingly, the two tables and their bases, the 8 chairs and the tools all fit in my town and country without even blocking the rear view mirror. we could have fit in another 6 chairs at least. for more pictures and info visit our dorset csutom furniture blog ... thanks … dan

As much as I like the slab tables the ladderback chairs are just outstanding. Another home run Dan.

Beautiful pieces! I would love to see them in person, as the photos are great, but I’m sure the wood grain is even more extraordinary in person!

Wow! Is what comes to mind. That is the same expression I gave when Skip showed me the one you made that now sits with enormity in Normans Timber Framed living room (Skips office).

Beautiful wood and craftsmanship! I’m impressed. This table is made from one of the most beautiful pieces of walnut I’ve seen on Lumberjocks. I keep sawing logs and looking for treasures like this. Like the lady said; “You’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince!”

Another wonderful round of work Dan. Hats off to you and your team. I find the figure, grain, and overall appearance of the first slab table is especially beautiful.
