Two tables that will be delivered tomorrow. Bookmatched black walnut tops. Large table measures 29tall x 49 at widest point x 57 long. Small table measures roughly 38×40. One table will be used in kitchen area and the other in dining room. If a large number of dinner guests visit they will butt the two table together where the slabs were cut the edges flow back to their origin length/shape. Top finished out at 1 5/8 thick. Table is finished with wiping varnish topped with wax . Base is intended to appear delicate while the top is the showcase. Last picture shows top at a better camera angle to give you better idea of shape. Thanks for looking.

I like to express all I think about a project, with a constructive intention….
You made an outstanding work with this couple of tables. The idea of continuity on both tables is great, very strong point. The slabs showing all their nature are stunnig, I love that, specially all type of “imperfections”. Is clear the idea of both tops as the showcase pieces. the legs look good into that idea, balanced into the picture, but I think the end view needed a bit of more atention, in that “buterfly” shape, it needed more intensity. The tops being the Showcase pieces, doesnt mean the legs don’t need atention!
Same thing with the butterflys on the tops, a bit small, and the shape is weak.
Beautiful tables!

You must send some picture of your last project (torii bench) to these client: I think both pieces would fit together very well. Very nice tables, John.

Alejandro, I just took an order for a 6’ Elm table based on this design. They also ordered two benches based on the torii design.
