This was my first butternut project. The entire table was constructed from one 8/4 slab 24 inches wide. I had made this table with the intention of selling it, but when it was finished my wife had other plans for it as you can see in the last pic.

I don’t know anything about Butternut, but it’s gorgeous. Where does it grow?

Butternut is a relative of black walnut. It’s also known as white walnut.
I haven’t worked with it but I have a table that my father made from it and it’s awesome wood.
Great looking table! I love the thickness of the top.
