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.

One must keep the wife happy. It looks like a very beautiful piece.

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

That’s a good looking table. I bet that your wife loved it.

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.

Have your say...
