Very handsome ! Love that chunk of elm on the top. Too bad shipping is so brutal (to Canada at least) or I would try and talk you into swapping some elm for some spalted maple . . . (almost) no wood with that kind of nice brown color out here.

Nice job on the table Monte. Particularly, the matchup of the grain for the glued-up top. Almost impreceptable. Although I’m gonna ding you on the mill marks left on the end with the glare. :) Or maybe I’m wrong. Still, a very nice table. I’ll bet it looks better in person.

Very Nice wood I like the live edge on the table. Sounds like you are doing well with your shows.

Another winner! That elm is spectacular and you matched the pieces really nicely. My elm also seems a lot lighter colored that yours. Can’t believe someone didn’t buy it when you were setting up. It’s one of my favorites.
