This black walnut table is; 72" L x +/- 54" W x 1 3/4" Th. The trestle base is also walnut with mortise & tenon joints. 'Flitch' is a term used for a slab of wood that is produced when the boards have the natural edge of the tree. This produces the widest most beautiful boards possible from the
The beauty of Flitch wood is the natural outstanding grain patterns and color variation that parallel the natural edges, also the unique size of the board.
Since the design of the top is largely the shape & grain of the tree, every top is unique.

Most any other piece of furniture can be designed and built using flitches.
A few words about Furniture
Furniture can be a fun, creative and a functional expression of your life style.
There are Ã«simplyÃ, NO LIMITS as what can be designed and built.
We enjoy mixed media projects and have had experience in many materials, including natural stone, metals, leather, solid surface, plastic laminate, and glass, (etched, stained and beveled).
Whether the piece you want is traditional, contemporary, eclectic or artistic, as you've seen, we can built it!

The cabinet fits just perfect. All the little "cut out" details make a huge difference. Everything is so neat and tidy, no plugs or cables showing. We bolted it to the wall right away. It's really great looking, a naturally beautiful & unique piece we will always enjoy. It's so sturdy too. Keep up the good and creative work. Thanks for creating such a cool piece.
