well, i’m sure by this time, some of you folks are getting tired of seeing these big walnut tables. some may say ‘you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all”, but i don’t know…. they’re all different to us. like, some are heavier to lug around the shop than others. but, we seem to be on a roll with them, and i’ll keep building them as long as people keep ordering them … the last slab in this series of pictures arrived last friday, and it’s for a 38” wide x 10’ table that we will be getting underway on on wednesday. the slab is 3” thick so it’s definitely one of the heavy ones. along with that slab, we purchased four other medium sized pieces from two different logs. they aren’t sold yet, but we do have plans to make a desk from one of them for another upcoming show. there are pictures of the new slabs on my blog at this link. the top one on the stack there is a humdinger … if you’re wondering if i robbed a bank or something, we recently sold a big claro table we had built on spec at our recent winter show and i’m, as i tell my wife, ‘reinvesting the profits for future returns.’ nice of her to go along with us … also i kind of tried to organize some of our previous claro walnut projects into one big blog post with links so if you missed some of our earlier tables and want to see more walnut, go there.
all for now …
