These coffee tables were made from crotch sawn pieces of a locally harvest walnut tree. They were begging to be used in some free form piece. The size varies but both are approximately 43"(L)x20"(w)x14 1/2"(h).

The tops are joined to the slab legs by sliding dovetails and a dowel. There is also a 4"x3/4" rail between them.

The finish is Watco wipe on poly.
