What we would call a, "Double Waterfall," on account of this being a single slab we dovetailed and mitered in two places allowing the grain to flow from the top nose to the bottom. Highly figured Walnut with our own Tung oil mix finish. Turned another piece of walnut on the lathe which is the post leg in the center of the open end. Also sits on four heavy walnut dowels giving the piece a 1/4" lift all the way around. Very heavy, very sturdy, glossy finish.
