This is a kitchen table that is made of 8/4 spalted maple edged with walnut and rift sawn white oak. Made in a trestle style with a Walnut slab for the trestle all 8/4 Legs are rift/ quartersawn white oak with walnut laminated in to the feet assembly. Size is 4’x 6’ with the leaves it is 4’x 8’ This was built for some one who wanted it ” Solid and heavy” All wood was harvested locally and epoxy used to fill the top voids and knots. Epoxy was used as a grain filler do to the inconsistency and porous nature of the maple. The ones on the legs and trestle I left open to highlight. I used a 2 part urethane spray to clear coat and finish the project with 3 coats.
I used the router planing jig to level this after glue up that is also one of my projects posted earlier since 48” wide planers are hard to come by
