A guy stoped by my shop and said he had some old lumber in his barn that had been there for about 50 years. Said he whould get it outta the loft and give it to me. Time passed forgot all about it. I came home one to find a bunch of junk piled on my shop porch, i got mad ! Till i found out what it was ! Walnut! 2 slabs one almost 7’ long 1 3/4 thick, widest place 23” dressed. The other about 6’ long 1 3/4 thick about 22” wide dressed also. Also several other pieces of lumber from the same tree dressed to 5/8 thick. All of it from the same tree natural edge. Stack it up it was like turning the pages of a book. That was about 2 years ago. I can’t remember who he was and and as far as i know he’s never been back.
iI finally built the tables this spring. They both have hidden drawers. The front band drops down, thats why the knobs are counter sunk. When people (about 50} were looking at it, i asked how they liked the drawers no one ever found them.
The top is done with satin poly all else is tung oil.
One lady bought them both.
