This has to be one of my favorate tables I have built! The wood was recovered from a construction site in Crystal Lake, IL. I had air dried the log for 1 year. Then I processed the log into 3 1/2" thick solid slabs with my 36" Hudson Sawmill. Next. I dried the wood in my Dehumidifier Kiln. The Table and Bench where built for a client in the North side of Chicago.
