This full size, contemporary dining table consists of a Big Leaf Maple slab, 2" thick, on a trestle-type walnut base.  The finish is polyurethane varnish, steel wooled.  After the slab was coarsely wide-belt sanded to flatten it, it took over 60 hours of work to debark the edges and interior gaps, ultimately using a dental pick, and then sanding, varnishing and steel wooling.

Design or Plan used: My own design - Fredric Blum Design
