The very talented Architect Josh Shatkin invites clients to his home often and needed something to show his excellent taste and design sensibility. He also needed the table to be practical around the holidays when he entertains. We bounced ideas around and what he received was a Black Walnut dining table with two 18″ leaves. The border is quarter-sawn black Walnut and Swiss Pear Wood stringing. The center of the table is 4-way book matched and sequenced Walnut Burl. The legs are solid Black Walnut.
