Today I was at a friends shop learning how to do a polished finish as part of an apprenticeship program of The Sierra Nevada Fine Furniture Makers Guild and ended up purchasing and sanding down these two amazing walnut slabs. Now I have to figure out what exactly to do with them.

I think the first one is going to become my apprenticeship project. I am thinking the slab will be a tabletop with continuous grain apron and a center drawer. Not sure about the legs.
