Default Walnut Burl table with pictures this time

I want to thank Herb, Stick, Tonto 1, Mark, and Vince you guys have a great sense of humor, that's what I love
about this site. This is the Walnut Burl table top I had to strip down and do over, Much better the second time.
The top was sprayed with two coats of lacquer, the next day two more coats, did this for 5 days. Than two coats
of urethane for three days with wet sanding between coats. Oh yea I forgot to add the pictures yesterday, than
I forget lots of things these days. .

That is an unreal piece of wood! Beautiful figuring in the grain.

Hi Larry,The outline of the table top looks like neck,shoulders & chest (to me) & you have brought out one of natures' best designs.A beautiful work of art. Congratulations & thank you for sharing

John, I am glad you weren't offended, I got to thinking that I shouldn't have said that,knowing you made a mistake and forgot to post the picture. But I had to do it.........
I wish there iis a WOW button for posts like that, and we seem to be getting a lot of them lately.
Great job joining those 2 pieces down the middle,they look like one piece. I just love wood patterns like that. Good job matching the finish on the pedestal too.

Wow, that is truly special! What are the dimensions of that top. My mill will cut up to 26" if I remember correctly. I would love to cut some stuff like that if I can find it.
