Walnut Slab Coffee Table

Similar to another coffee table we built last fall, we sent this one out into the world last Wednesday. It's eastern walnut rather than Claro. It was about 28" wide at the narrow end and about 7' long and 18" high ... simple base, two verticals of 16/4 x 16" wide and two 1/4" steel plates ... Beautiful grain ... The slab came from Alderfer Lumber in Pennsylvania ... Click the pictures to enlarge them ...

Here, you can more clearly see the base detailing, what little there is of it ...
On the bottom, we routed the slab to receive the 1/4" x 6" plates ... washer head screw/bolts in oversize holes to allow for expansion and contraction .... simple ....
