This table started as my neighbors tree. There are 4 large black walnut trees on my road. (60” diameter) He has it cut down and sold most of it. I asked if he would mind me taking a large piece from near the top that had three leads at the end. He gave me the log for free and the rest is history. Some of the best crotch walnut I have seen! I ended up making him a box as a thank you. Now if I can just get my hands on the other 3 walnuts on my street

Beautiful Table! Well done. I notice you chose to go lower than typical with the stretcher. Was that to make it more of a foot rest than a knee knocker, or just aesthetics?

That wood is pure gold, er, pure walnut, which, if you are like me, pretty much consider them equal.

Super and duper. Nice work.

Splendid showcase of the wood’s beautiful grains. I think a lighter piece would go well vertically as well as the doors to my storage cabinets or just to lead me to the kitchen.

You ever get that feeling when you are wondering what the grain of the wood of a tree could possibly look like, this is one of those moments….
