Here is an Oregon white oak table with a strong clean leg detail. With tables I like to announce how leg design should never go unnoticed, and of course I can't help but do things a bit unusual. The edge detailing speaks boldly for itself.
This is a pair of bookmatched 4" thick slab of local Oregon white oak placed on a trestle leg system. It was rather green when built, and the wood has shrunken quite a bit. Our butterflies really do the job of holding it together. It weighs a ton, and when you sit at it feeling its solid density, it is a very grounding experience. This is an oil-based satin polyurathane finish.
