This is a hall table I made for a client. The top is curly walnut veneer, edged in maple and walnut.
I wish I had taken a picture of the front, the grain on the apron is much prettier.
The finish is 3 coats of witches brew and then waxed.

Thanks for looking.

Dave

HOLY SMOKES !!! I’VE NEVER SEEN THAT MUCH FIGURE IN WALNUT UNTIL NOW….WHAT DID YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP TO BUY THAT PIECE ? ARM? LEG ?

Really beautiful piece. I’ve seen a stretch of curly walnut before, but not that much.

This is a beautiful table. You picked a good choice of woods as well. I agree with the comments on the figured walnut. That is a gorgeous pattern.

Thanks for the post.

Amazing! As others have said, I’ve never seen any walnut like that.

That is a nice looking table. First for my too, on that much figure in walnut. Are you sure that’s not some of that Chinaberry wood? :]

Dave:
You need to provide us, as we stand in awe, the finish information as well. I’ve never seen walnut looking like that, either, and as you obivously know finishing a gorgeous piece of wood can either detract or enhance the natural beauty. This is amazing!! Tell us! Tell us!

Man that’s gorgeous. How are you gonna use it though? I can’t see ever wanting to put anything on it and blocking the view of that awesome top.
