Walnut table recently made for a client in Missouri. This table is made made from 2 slabs of walnut. The top is one slab 40” wide and 10ft long. The base is made from one slab cut in half. The table is finished with Odie’s Oil and Odie’s Wood Butter.

Thank you for the nice comments.

Bagtown, Each leg is connected to the top with 2 walnut boards connected to the legs by a blind tenon. The boards are connected perpendicular to the legs and then they are connected to the table. I will post a photo of the connection later today. The table is very stable. A 250 pound man can sit on either end and the table does not move.

This is a detail of the connection to the top (blind tenon). The table was delivered to the client last month so all I have is this cell phone photo of the underside detail. I took this photo when I was building the table (I put a taper on the boards after this photo was taken). The 2×4 walnut boards extend through the legs around 20” on both sides of the legs and are connected to the legs with a blind tenon. Looks sort of like a T from the side profile. The boards are not visible unless you look under the table. Its a very simple design but functional. The joints are made on the table saw. There are 8 screws that connect the legs to the top.

Sorry the photo posted on its side. Not sure why?? I will post it in the gallery for a better view. In one of my past lives I was a pro-photographer but I never caught up with the digital age so please bear with me.
