The Family Table

I just carried into the house the project I have been thinking about since we moved to the new house.   After 3 years of drying the wood was finally ready to be used to build our family table.   Since red elm dries with twists, bends, and check cracks I had to build the table top as a butcher block and plane the final piece to flat.   All cracks, nots, and voids were filled with epoxy prior to finishing.  I absolutely love the look but am kind of glad that I don’t have a whole lot of it left making this table a true one of a kind piece.
