We were contacted to build a table that was to be placed on a spring porch in Calhoun, Ga. The client wanted a large table that could sit her entire family(kids and grand kids). What we ended up with was a table that is 3’ wide by 10’ long. The top took many hours of sanding and planing to ensure flatness, but turned out really well. The wood used for the top is really unique, especially the piece that clearly shows the branches etc.(I still have not figured out why and how that is)

This is a beautiful table. i click on this every time it pops up in a project search.
