Here are a couple solid walnut countertops I did for a friend who is a custom home builder. This was my first stabb at commissioned work, so I was a little nervous. Obviously nothing is ever perfect, but you never know what people will choose to pick apart. The tops themselves are simply edge joined face grain tops with a French Baroque edge.

Looks great, I would have been nervous also making them out of solid wood. Great job the more commissions that you do the more your confidence will build.

pretty impressive counter tops! when we built our home 20 years ago i made oak counter tops, manly because it was cheaper than regular tops. they have held up real well. that also got me into making cutting boards because the wife threaten everyone with bodily harm if they cut up her counter tops.
thanks for the post.
