Walnut End Table With Breadboard Ends
A friend gave me a walnut tree from his back yard. Another friend with a sawmill cut it into boards for me if I could get it to his house about two hours away. Well you should have seen how loaded down my poor little red pickup truck was. I had to drive all back roads to get it there. I air dried the boards in my basement for almost two years before I could begin using them. Many beautiful pieces came from that tree including this table. The top and aprons are of walnut. The top has mahogany breadboard ends and a bead design that is continued on the bottom of the aprons. The legs are of black walnut with a thin piece of walnut laminated in the middle. The bottom 5" of the legs were cut off; tapered; rotated 90 degrees; reattached with dowels; and a small v-chamfer cut at the joint. It was finished with a drawer. New commissions would be made of purchased materials as none of the original tree remains.
