I am grateful to “Sawdustonmyshoulders” Marty Sparks for the inspiration to create this version of church conference tables. The material used was white oak. Some were quartersawn, some are riftsawn. After filling the grain, wipe on 50/50 poly/MS was used for the finished with a satin sheen. The stretchers are attached with removable walnut dowels pins. Lord willing these tables will be around for many years to come.

Beautiful craftsmanship! Love the inlay and the cathedral arches in the legs. Top notch all the way. Thanks for sharing.

Is the cross in the proper proportions? It looks more like a plus sign? Nice table though.

DKV; Each arm of the cross is 14”. Using the 3:1 ratio I made the total length 42” It may be the camera angle that I used. I could not get the entire 16 foot table in my view finder. Thanks for all the nice comments.

That’s one huge and beautiful table. Great wood choice and joinery. The cross inlay makes a great accent. I’m sure it will last long to be enjoyed. Great job!

Dave,

You did a great job on the table. Great choice of woods, design, joinery, etc. I really like the inlay cross.
I can’t tell in the photo, did you square off the cross intersection or leave the it rounded off?

Thanks for sharing.

Jim,
The edges are rounded. The intersection of the cross is cut on a 45 degree angle. Glad you like the tables. They took three months to build but will last for generations to come.
