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.

Really nice. It’s my type of furniture.

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?

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.
