Round Table by Peter

The top is 6′ 8″ in diameter and the entire table is made from old oak reclaimed rough sawn 2×10’s.  The base is joined with Dominos.
It brought a tear to my eye to plane it all down, but I was really happy with the final look.
It’s enormous and several hundred pounds.

Slab Entry Table by Ron

Just finished a 3 legged entry table for my son & his wife’s new house as a house warming gift.  Its from the maple “Ant slab” I bought from you a couple weeks ago. They LOVE it!!  I epoxied up a few cracks, inset the 3 hairpin legs that I painted flat wrinkle black.
