A good freind had seen a coffee table that I had made for my own home (another one of my project posts) from a slab of walnut with beautiful burl and curly figure and asked if I could make one for her and her husbands new home. I love to work on these projects so I jumped at the chance. We traveled to Keim Lumber in neighboring Ohio and picked out a slab of walnut that would end up becoming both the top and the legs. Knowing that we wanted to feature the crack where the tree branched out from the main trunk, we also picked out aq piece of wenge to make a series of three dutchmen of diminishing size to both stabilize the crack and to make it more interesting.
The legs were designed to give the table a bit more of a modern style as this was my freinds desire. I think that it turned out pretty good.
Thanks for looking,
