Walnut slab top, cedar legs and oak burl twist center brace. I turned the bowls and plate also…

I would love to know more about what went into creating this beautiful coffee table.

The top is a walnut tree we had removed several years back that I sawed into slabs and had been air drying. From some cedar lying around, I cut & tenoned the legs. I found a perfect little oak that had a vine growing around it. Everything just blended together.

Nice work. I like the stretcher with the vine compression shape.

It’s beautiful. I’m intrigued by the stretcher between the legs. Is it carved?
Cheers

Nice work. Not my style, but that doesn’t mean I can’t consider it beautiful.

Nice. I’m not a pro by any definition of the word, but it doesn’t take a pro to see when a beautiful slab has been butchered. Too often people don’t take the time to get the proportions right. Slabs can look heavy, or out of place… but you’ve done a very nice job here. It has a nice lift. The base fits the top. More importantly, the table fits the room. From someone who really appreciates a good piece of wood, thank you.

Definitely among my favorites.

Beautiful job! Proportions and look is just right. Of course, I’m obviously more easily impressed than the dogs. :-)

It’s a spectacular table out of a beautiful slab. Congratulations.
