This table is a nice example of our classic trestle style base in walnut, paired with a once in a life time top.
The top is made from two curly maple slabs that are bookmatched and joined. The original slabs were over 16 ft long! However, the tension in these slabs(that most likely created the curly grain) caused the slabs to have a fair amount of twist to them. I cut the top down to 11 ft to lessen the effects of the twisting a little. Placing this table on a trestle base has allowed a balancing of the two twisted ends and in my opinion makes it a fully functional table. Please inquire and I can show you in pictures what the twisting looks like… though as you can see it does not affect the overall aesthetic.
