I really like the shape of this 8/4 walnut slab So does my wife since she’s making me keep it. The cherry legs compliment the walnut top pretty well. After router planing and sanding to 320 grit, I filled the grain with AquaCoat and finished with 5 coats of semi-gloss Arm-R-Seal. Thanks for looking

Looks very nice.
It should be mandatory….......with every table posted, a description and picture of how the legs are attached to the top should always be included.
How are your legs attached to the table top?

That is beautiful, love the grain pattern and the finish.
Great job.
I reckon you gained a few “Brownie Points” with that.
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
