This table lives at the same condo as the round bench I posted last week. It’s about 15 feet to the left of it. Anyway, the top is 8/4×40”x120”, made of just 2 book matched pieces. This was one heavy mother. I was in a hurry, while taking these pics, and was unable to get those money shots, one day ill get better ones. Also a polarized lens would have helped to capture the grain pattern, because these labs were beauties. These will have to do for now.

Beautiful, the base is great. I am always looking for industrial table bases for legs without much luck, this incorporates some of that look in wood.

I love walnut and plan to make a table for my dining room addition. Your design is beautiful! Can you tell us more about the chairs…how you made them and design?

Would you be willing to share details on the finish?
