10 foot long Douglas Fir Slab Table

Sometime in the later part of 2019 I was given the opportunity to build a large table with some slabs of Douglas Fir that had been milled from some beams that had been laying in a basement of a building since the late 1890s. These are the slabs on the day I brought them into me shop in Ely:


It was a very simple project only made difficult by the fact that it was very large. Gluing up the top was a fun project:
