This table top measures 54” X 105” and 2 1/4” thick. It is made with two book matched boards. I filled up the defects with black dyed fiberglass resin. It has several bow tie inlays.

Wow, amazing table! The finish looks absolutely flawless. I imagine that you’ll have to have several strong helpers to move that around!

That is a beautiful table. I bet that slab was difficult to move around. I’m especially fond of the base shaping.

Absolutely gorgeous top, love the book match. Pedestal is a great design. This piece is sure to be a family heirloom. Just wonder how many lj’s drooled over this one!

That is a fabulous looking table and a great looking top. Where do you find such massive slabs? Am I right that each one is over 22 inches wide?

Well done. I really like the proportions on the legs as well – just the right size and profile to avoid bulkiness in such a large piece.
