Beautiful piece. Any problems with it being tippy at the end?

Looks great—I love incorporating live-edge wood into a more contemporary design. How did you join the top corner?

Ah hA! Cant as in cantilever, and not as in “Hey! You can’t do that!” Well, at least if the economy goes all to pot, you’ll be able to take in IRONING :-)
(sorry, but an ironing board is what I thought of when I flipped thru your pictures)
Nice table, Love the grain

You got it Joe! Now that you mention it… kinda does look like an ironing board!
bryson, the edge is joined using biscuits, and then reinforced with the runner on the underside that you can see in the “from the side” photo.
dusty, Yep it’s cant, but I just can’t look at can’t without the apostrophe… wheww
Monty, it’s amazingly stable, that was my main concern, but we had it on a rug for a bit and I could even put my cat on the far end and didn’t have any wobble (and she’s a fatty).

That is one unusual table. Beautiful wood and nice work.

Ken – The finish is just a wipe on poly, lots of coats, and some elbow grease with the final sanding and buffing. I was going through a little love affair with wipe on poly at the time… I may need to revisit it, b/c I do love the finish of it, especially over walnut.
