Table built from a single 6 inch thick by 38 inch wide Slab of amazing Broad Leaf western Maple.
Slab was cross cut at 6 feet leaving just enough 6 in slab for me to re saw,(by hand) and make sides of base
from , stretchers have soft arch and flow threw the sides. Slab was ripped , cut in half with three different hand saws then glued back together with hidden spline to assure 24” to 30” base sides stay stable and flat for a very long time! Top is 36” ish by 6 feet and there is a slit curve to one end aka 36” one end 35” 11/16 on they other
I love the flow with the grain.
Note I inserted 3 knots in the table top to fill holes can you find them?
Bench is made from next slab in flitch as well as a 8 foot mantel top.
Finish is sprayed satin urethane ,waited three weeks then cut polish.
