Been some time since I made things for a living, so this was kind of fun. Nephew asked me to make a nice coffee table as a wedding gift, so... Think I may start tinkering around on more in my spare time when my back cooperates.

The top is a Black walnut rough cut slab I picked up in Oklahoma. I didn't think of photos until I had the base near done, so they aren't that good and not many taken. My daughter took the finish photos at my dads after supper, so hopefully those are better.



Frame finished


Laying out what I want and getting ready to level both sides


Test run


Well ,photobucket went haywire and I cant get the finished photos to post more than a link, but there they are if you want to see it finished.

Crazy expensive, almost all slab wood is now. This one this size roughly 28"x42"x 2.5" runs from a couple hundred to I have seen some over 2k EACH! Depends on supplier. grain. and other factors, I got this one reasonable from a family with the tree in Oklahoma.

Yes sir, could probably remove the wood and use the frame to rebuild a V8 grin
