9′ X 4′ Walnut Dining Room Table
Recently finished commission. The client wanted a large table with a thick top that would have a commanding presence in their newly remodeled country home. For the top I resawed 1/4″ veneer from a premium board and laminated it in a book match pattern onto walnut boards of a lesser grade. The outer boards and the breadboard ends were selected to frame the book match figure of the center. The base is understated and inspired by traditional picnic tables. I used a shop made gel stain to give the table an aged walnut color. The top coat is 4 coats of satin lacquer.
