Woodworker John Malecki created this amazing river table with a massive piece of gnarly claro walnut and a lot of elbow grease. The end result is worth all the effort.
His blog about the build goes into step-by-step details for the ambitious project:
In this video I build a live edge river table with the most insane piece of walnut I have ever seen. I use a highly exotic piece of walnut from Oregon. When the slab came in it was almost 12′ long x 5′ wide. With the glass insert the table ends up at roughly 8′ x 40″. This river table had a ton of tricky parts and speed bumps a long the way. Check out the full video build and walk through below if you would like to pick up some tips to build your own river table!
This piece is an homage to the "King of River Tables," artisan Greg Klassen.
