Walnut Natural Edge Table 36"

This is made from a 10' piece a
friend brought into the shop.  The
boards was tapered inch and one
half on end and one inch one the
other, I left it that way. Since it is a
natural edge project, why not
leave it tapered. The face of the
board was hand planed smooth
and tapered the full length.
Mortise tenon joints were used to
fastened the project together.
The man who brought this board in
was battling cancer and lost the
battle. His name is written in ink
under the top.
