I came across this monolithic slab of walnut half buried in the mud at a local mill. It was soaking wet, completely weathered, and had some bug issues. The slab was 7″ thick, but I had to remove a full inch in order to clean it up and flatten it.
I used reclaimed douglas fir blocks for the base, and finished them with an ebonizing process.
The coffee table finished out at 60″ long, 18″ wide, and 15″ hi.
