Since I used up my Ash slabs I brought out the Oak. Not sure what I’ve been saving it for, maybe this. It is 54”L x 40” T x 30 ” deep. Roughly 135 lbs. Not something you want to pack to the parking lot.

Fair is starting very slow today. About 95 degrees.

Thanks for looking

Very nice, especially the use of the natural edges.

You certainly have that style down pat. Here’s hoping for another sellout!
