Walnut Dining Table and Coffee Table

A client bought a new home and wanted a custom hardwood table. We used three Walnut slabs from the same tree that had some amazing figure. All the defects were filled with black epoxy and we used Leopardwood bowties to stabilize the cracks and for aesthetics. Finally we finished the top with Rubio Monocoat 2C oil in Pure. The bases were fabricated custom and sprayed with soft flat iron and clear sealer.

  • Wow! These look fantastic.  Each of the style pieces you chose look great together.  The table leg design is super cool.

    • Thanks, this table is one of my favorites we've done so far and I cant wait to do the next with the other two slabs from this log. I think we are going to go with copper colored legs and epoxy.

  • The dinning table looks amazing.  No that the coffee table doesn't but I love the bow ties.  I have a couple boards that I have been saying I'm gonna do something with for too long now.  Mine are maple but I love your walnut.  Also, really like the legs.  Did you buy them locally or on-line?  I saw ones on Amazon that I was thinking of getting.

    • A fellow maker friend helped me put with the legs and we fabricated them locally specifically for the dimensions of this table. If your close to stl we could probably help you out. I would also highly recommend rubio monocoat 2c for hardwood finishing, its amazing stuff.
