Here is a Walnut coffee table.
I created it from a fallen tree that I
squirreled away a couple years ago.
This is the first slab I have leveled with my
slab leveling jig, it worked great.
The legs are set into dadoes in the bottom at
ten degrees. The trestle stringer is mortised through
the legs and held with a tusk tenon.
There is no glue in this piece, so it can be be broken down
for whatever. The table is 7’6” long and 18” to 24” wide 20” high and 2” thick.
These pictures are not the greatest, I can post better ones later.

Thanks all for the encouragement.

Hal- If I get tired of the table, I could always have you make me some very nice rifle stocks.

A beautiful piece! I really like the angled legs and the tusk tenon joinery. I would have had to epoxy that crack/knot on the top but that is just me. I’m thinking those 10 degree angled mortises were a challenge! Ya done good here. Congrats on the well deserved Top 3.

Walnut is the key to my heart – slabs too. Both in one project makes me drool.
