Thanks! Yes, I’m very happy to be done, much more so than relieved.

Scott…the more I look at it the more I like it. The straight grain matches the simplicity of the lines and the top is really nice. It reminds me of some old the old high quality school furniture. I use to have the old principals chair from my elementary shool ( a long story I’ll tell some other time) Quartersawn oak and very sturdy. Your table would look great next to it.

Looks AWESOME Scott! Great job! I love the slate. Just think, you can keep a piece of chalk nearby and leave messages right on the table. Like, “I’m in the shop”...

Very nice Scott! That is a very unique idea on the top and that offset matches what you have down the legs and pulls the top and legs all together. A+

How elegant. Very clean and neat. I think your ‘recycling project’ made use of superior skill and cunning. Well done, Scott!

I like the outdoor pics. You can get a better sense of the wood with natural light. Great job, Scott.
