this is our new dining room table. i made it from a book matched pair of pecan slabs that were taken after the tree fell during irene last year. i cut the slabs with my chainsaw and dried them in my solar kiln, then planed them with my router and jig(see pic). these slabs weren’t long enough or wide enough for the table so i added poplar to the middle and ends. it will have black and cowhide chairs with it until my brother finishes my maloof chairs!!! i hope you enjoy and i will post a few blogs soon about my “planer” and milling after i get another log. thanks

That is a fine looking table. The process is as interesting as the final product. Thank you for sharing.

Nice looking table. I’m currently buliding one on a blog here for our outdoor kitchen. It has been fun. Today should be the last day of sanding and I will be ready to spray the finish. How did you finish yours?
