That is a very cool piece. I work with several people in the New Orleans area and I’m sure they would all like to see something beautiful come from that mess.

Nice job, there is a satisfaction of using hand planes. Some people claim it’s from getting to know the wood better, but I think its from the sweat that pour into the wood.

Recycler,

This is a nice table. You certainly earned your commission on this one. The natural edge and the spalting add details to the table that create visual interest.

The finish looks good as well.

Thanks for sharing.

I think the natural edge really stands out nicely. Great finished product. I’ve still got the hand wood working lessons to brave through myself.

Love that natural edge. I have an old piece of walnut that is like that. I was going to slice it off but you have given me a new idea. Thanks!

Love the spalted wood.

I sure wish I’d had the resources to mill some of downed trees in my neighborhood after Katrina. I could have had a lifetime supply of lumber.

This is really nice and its great that you used salvaged wood. I love all the character and how you incorporated the natural edge.

-- Happy woodworking!
