Wanlut coffee table, this is a natural edge walnut slab, top is 2” thick and 24” deep and 60” long, We left on a little bark, walnut has such a great looking bark when sanded smooth, Looks like pebbles under water or even fish scales.
Top is sitting on a 38” wide cedar stump, we power washed and sanded smooth,
Finishes is a minwax hand rubed poly finish easy to apply and we love the low luster looks,
Wife loved this table so much it is staying in our living room.

I’m normally not a big fan of this sort of thing, but that’s a fantastic slab. Beautiful job.

Nice shape & finish looks really nice. Can’t blame your wife for snagging it for the living room. Very nice.

I love the live edge tables like this. Very nice job. That low luster finish really brings out the walnut’s natura color. My wife would get jealous if I showed her this, so I just won’t show her.
