This side table is made from one board of Black Walnut. The size of the table was dictated by the width of the board as I wanted to try and make it without gluing up extra boards. It ended up 14” wide. Too wide for the planer so I ended up flattening and thicknessing to just over an inch thick by hand which was a good workout.
I like the chunky dovetails which are the only ornamentation on this otherwise simple piece of furniture where the grain wrapping up and over in sequence speaks for itself.
Finished with BLO and then poly.
I have the rest of the board left over to make another matching table.
All comments welcome.
