This is the first of two sister coffee tables I made for two brothers.  This one from a gigantic walnut log an arborist friend of mine took down and the other is from a curly cherry log that the arborists brother gave me. I milled the walnut log by hand with a chainsaw (which I regret) but it turned out ok I suppose.  The apron is from fairly well figured birdseye maple board I picked up in Amish country but it didn't come through very well in the picture.  From standing tree to finished product, some of the most gratifying work I've done yet. 

Design or Plan used: rodel inspired
