Another Claro Walnut Slab Table

well, OK … this semi retirement thing must be ok … after writing
many posts per month since November of 2007, I just noticed I 
haven't posted anything since april … i'm still working, but I only need 
a little work to keep myself out of trouble all week, and the nephew busy Tuesdays and Wednesday. I seem to be good for about 5 or 6 hours a day. in by 9:00, hour for lunch with a nap, off to the golf course or the tennis court by 3:30 or 4:00 ... it has been a great summer, and
the pressure is off of the marketing department …
work continues to roll in more or less at about the right pace … 
here's one we finished back in june ..
the process was typical .. we have made about 50 of them ...
pictures and notes below.
the raw slab from goodhope hardwoods
adjust in photoshop to the clients dimensions and request for 'straightened edges'
the client requested a new design trestle steel base
 made a new model with the new base design

sam whipped it up
while Kristian and I did a few repairs
and laid out the 'straightened edges with placemats
you can see the cuts in the photo with the green tape
all in, all done … out the door in early july
