My first Project… finished May 2011.
End grain hard maple with walnut trip and walnut frame.
Started this project before I knew anything and made some mistakes that I plan to fix.
The end pieces I attached with glue and the movement of the wood has caused what was once a very clean corner to look not so pleasing. I do plan on taking those off eventually and attaching bread board ends to the table.
Table is 3” thick and solid throughout, 25” x 36”. Each piece was cut individually and jointed to the next. Used router jig and dish bit to flatten the top/bottom and then a LOT of sanding.
Walnut frame was hand cut mortice and tenon.
Finished with 8 coats of tung oil… cut the first 3 or 4 with mineral spirits.
Serves as our coffee table for now… may be a top to a small kitchen island some day.
