Made from solid black walnut. While milling the legs for the bench, I ran into what looks like an old lead musket ball. I left it intact and visible on the legs. Unfortunatly no pics of it.

Hi, the dimensions are 60” L x 39” W x 30” H. The bench fits between the table legs and is 18” high. Thanks for looking.

I’ve been looking for some examples of floating tops. Anything special I need to know about building one?

Hi Earl, took a little playing around with to get it looking right. I couldn’t really find to much about constructing it on the net when I built it. It shouldn’t be to high from the apron. The end slats that float the top should be set back just enough that they aren’t noticable, but not so far back that you can see daylight through them. The top still needs ample support. The slats across the apron to hold the top up should be structured with a vertical board underneath it to give it rigidity. Other than that it’s a normal table.
