The dining room pieces I have made started with these two 14 feet long, book-matched American Walnut slabs

While most would turn these types of natural-edge wood slabs into conference tables, kitchen countertops or bar tops, I took advantage of the book-matched aspects and the feathering grain to create an entire dining room set. The book-matched natural edges made a unique design on each end of the sideboards. I flipped the feathered grain parts of the slabs to create the table and filled the voids in the wood with Jet stone and epoxy. The Jet stone and epoxy gives those areas a nice reflection from every angle. Wedged mortises and tenons add strength and design to all the pieces. New Guinea Walnut complemented the American Walnut well and was used for door panels and drawers.
