Nice table. What did you finish it with? It really brings out the grain.

Utilized Scott Morrison’s plans for guidance. The only piece that I was unsure of before starting was the center post and now I am ready for a full size kitchen table. My wedding gift to my sister will be a 48” walnut kitchen table very similar to this table.

That is gorgeous! Walnut is my favorite wood. I’ve got a few pieces squirreled away since 1975. This would be a great project for it. Thanks for sharing.

Very Nice job and great use of the 50+ year old walnut. This table is definitely on my bucket list of must do projects.

Does the top fold downward or is it fixed in place?
