Project Information

This is a 42''x 110'' conference table . I made the top with two bookmatch leaves I cut from a quilted spalted pecan tree I found on a job site . When I aquired the tree I started to bandsaw the tree on the site with the contractor and architect looking on . The architect was so impressed with the tree's figure and color he ordered a conference table from two of the trunk pieces . I essentially paid for the labor to cut the tree and still made a profit. The tressel style is carved geometric two by two .

Nice work. The figure on the spalted pecan is nice. Is it a veneer attached to a substrate or a solid slab?

Thank you all for the nice comments , I will hold them close to my heart to help inspire me on my woodworking journey. To answer your questions the quilted spalted top is solid 1 1/4'' thick with a 1 3/4'' walnut frame. I sprayed a conversion varnish finish because the pecan is so porous to get an even two coats. Thanks again guys. Art bringing down the house.
