Floating top table made of walnut and ash. Plans were from Wood Magazine. Fun project to build! This is the first table I’ve built where people actually look under it to see how it is made.

That’s a beauty!

Do you think it would work with a 1-1/2” soapstone top? Perhaps if I use a thicker leg?

Very nice looking table qball, I’m just about ready to put the finish on my very first table to ever to make, it’s a small display table, the table is a 1 1/2” slice from the center trunk of a hackberry tree and tapered walnut for the legs.

Blackie_: Sounds like a really nice table. I’d be curious to see your table once complete. I have a few 6” thick cross sectional slices of white oak drying out now. It was actually 3 trees that had grown together so the slices have some really interesting ring patterns. Hopefully it won’t crack all to pieces and I’ll be able to make something like what you describe in a few years.

Beautifull! Really nice!

Im with those people you said that had to look underneath. How about a picture showing the underside?
