a walnut dining table with a leaf

we shipped this one off to Florida last week ... natural walnut,
54 x 88 closed, one 20"" leaf .... 
                        This was the inspiration photo sent by the client early in the negotiations…
                                       So we started with some nice walnut from irion lumber
                                                and some poplar for test pieces

and a new cad drawing
we had a little back and forth on the apron details, but we got it
and we ordered a new custom shaper knife to cut the profile in one pass
ta dah!
it took a few shots to figure out the cnc work on the leg, and 
get the profile exactly the way the client wanted it,
but we finally got to a place where we were all happy
the top was pretty straightforward with the fine wood from irion lumber
time to get it all together
we finished it up, and off it went to florida ...
and we didn't hear a peep for a month or two. one day Kristian
asked if i had heard anything, and i hadn't.  then, i kid you not, later that day
i got some photos, and one of the nicest emails about a piece of furniture
a person could hope for ...

all for now
