Project Information

we are coming down the home stretch on a big ash table, 55" x 108" ... the base is welded 3×3" steel tubing and the steel and wood both have a clear, natural finish … the top started out as 12/4 (3" thick) which we flattened and planed to 2 and 3/8 ths" thick. it has breadboard ends, secured with splines and "4" timberlock screws, which are covered with end grain white oak 3/4" plugs … fairly straightforward, except for the size and weight, with a clean contemporary look. in the first photo above, you are actually seeing the bottom of the table top which will be flipped and the top of it will be final coated tomorrow … ready to ship to martha's vineyard later this week… more photos and info about cutting the splines on the breadboard ends on my dorset custom furniture blog

plus, for all you wild turkey fans, there's a link to a really short video of a strutting male turkey in the post below that one …

Looks nice, what kind of finish are you using on the steel? Does it hold up good on the steel?

really nice. Is this going into a contemporary style house?
I think it would be pretty cool there.

Just gorgeous ash, and you did a nice finish on it. I think ash is a much underrated wood.

Well that is certainly one big ash table. Love the mixed media. Scale is so cool. Massive!

With all the lumberjocks these days, it is pretty cool when you can just look at the picture and know who made it. As always very nice.

Another beautiful result. It would make a great working surface.
