I haven’t posted in quite some time – been busy with family stuff and part-time teaching. However, a while ago a good friend commissioned a kitchen table. She wanted it to be counter top height with an overhang to sit at on a stool. Kinda a hybrid peninsula/table. She wanted a live-edge walnut top and, originally, a maple base. After we priced out the materials, she decided she could live with a base what was painted white, so I went with poplar. I was impressed how well poplar sanded and held a nice coat of enamel. Easily the largest piece I’ve ever built and that sucker is heavy. I’m glad she likes it! Thanks for taking a look!

This table will be well loved! It will also become a family heirloom. Well done!

Really nice design. I haven’t seen much stained walnut used with white paint but I really like the way the colors contrast. Well done!

Stellar job on the farmhouse table…..You did good, and hopefully made your customer happy. BUT….I must confess that I don’t like live edge furniture…I’ve seen many pieces done here on LJs, and I tried to like them, but just can’t…..It’s nothing aganst anyone who builds them, and I have seen some beautiful pieces built, just not my taste in furniture…..!!

Thanks all for the kind words. Rick, yeah live edge is an acquired taste. In my case it helps make up for a lack of design sense and mediocre skills.

Have your say...
