And the largest slab of oak I have ever glued…>! This completes the dining set. Again a Rober tLang drawing. Thanks to my wood working buddy Gary Zimmel in Canada for supplying me with the full size templates for the curves.

Another beautiful piece! Matches your outstanding chairs and stands on its own without being over shadowed by its eight friends.

Wonderful craftsmanship and attention to detail. The trestle table and accompanying chairs will certainly be family heirloom pieces.

What a beast! They just don’t make them like that anymore.
I really like the keyed tenons, what a great look.

I built my Twin Tenon table with two large through tenons at each end. It is a secret pleasure every time someone racks their knee on one. Reminds me of a favorite quote…

Outstanding work on the chairs and table! I am really glad that I didn’t have to move the table. I also think your other projects are equally great. Truly inspirational.
