I don’t know why, but I am having the hardest time getting pictures to upload. The first one goes right up but thats all I can get to upload. The added pictures are also cut off a little by the ads. So try going to my blog if you would like to see them in full.

I love the massiveness of the top. That will make a fine desk.

I re-size my photos to a width of 700 pixels. Then they all fit in the frame.

It is nice. I wish I could find chunks of wood like that but the bums clear cut my forest about 50 years ago (North E. PA.) Dang thieves <grin> now all I have is the really tall skinny trees. Come to think of it if someone had clear cut me about 50 years ago I would be tall and skinny instead of tall and fat <laugh>

Hi Brian,

This turned out beautifully Man! That oil/wax finish really brings the table to life. I really find the juxtaposition of the squareness of the legs with the live-edge very dynamic. One can never go wrong with the combination of walnut and maple. This piece stays true to your green initiative. Great build and great commision
