    Walnut dining table

    Hi everybody,

    Many thanks for all the help I received on this site while working on this project. It's been done for a while, but I've been busy and it took a while to get pro photos. Then it took a while for me to get around posting them here. Anywho, here is my first dining table.

    Three walnut slabs on top, middle one obviously had the sides cut off.
    Legs are a bit complicated, but I put a metal in the legs because I was worried about the small tongue and groove relative to the leg size. I wasn't able to go any taller with my dado blade and I think the only other option at that point was to use hand tools, which I was too much of a wuss to try. I would be open to that now.

    Epoxy was a terrible experience. Hoping my next one goes much smoother.

    There is something about the intricate detail of all the joinery in that table, the character and tone of the wood, the finish that just screams "Look at me...I am a beauty!!!!" Well done Sir! Well done!

    Beautfiul wood and beautiful workmanship with a design that really works well in all it's elements. I predict many memorable meals around that table. Are chairs to follow?

    Those angled legs give it a very stable look and match the substantial look to the top. You have a very fine piece of furniture!

    excellent. I especially like the way you got the sapwood edges on the top to compliment each other.
