Nathan from the US sent me these pictures of a beautiful walnut sofa table he made, the design is by Matt Cremona. He managed to buy 1,000 board feet (about 80 cube for those in the UK) of the stuff at a very good price, lucky man!
He has used the fine timber very sensitively and the nice finish is Minwax wipe on poly.
The banding and the drawer sides are quartered butternut.
Nathan is saving the wood for special pieces and he has certainly created one here.
