Natural Edge Table by Skip and Jenny

“The table top is comprised of two 2 ½ inch (finished thickness) walnut natural edge slabs that came from the same tree. I squared off one edge of each and joined them with loose tenons. I left the natural edge on each of the sides of the slabs.  I constructed the trestle base with quarter-sewn white oak. I laminated two 8/4 boards for the base and vacuum-veneered quarter-sawn white oak veneer on the exposed joints. The top is held to the base with wooden brackets, slotted holes and screws to allow for wood movement. I actually assembled all the parts in our dining room so it will be a bear if we ever try to move this out of the house!I decided to add breadboard ends of white quarter-sawn oak attached with screws in oversized holes for wood movement. I plugged the recessed screw holes with ebony plugs. The quarter-sawn oak breadboard flowed nicely into the lighter-colored sap wood on the walnut.  By the way, we saved the little crotch opening on the one end of the table for a grandbaby to sit at.”

Walnut Dressing Vanity Build

To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material
