Large oak slab dining table

Large oak slab dining table, I always thought that we were never lucky enough in the UK to come across large slabs of timber that could rival timbers available in the states, however over the years I have been lucky enough to come across some stunning large pieces of timber, none as spectacular as the logĀ I stumbled upon on my latest visit to my supplier in East Sussex.

The log was felled some 5 years ago and the sections available are up to 5ft wide, 4 inches thick and 20 foot in length, the figuring on this English Oak timber is truly spectacular, i have never seen a figuring to this extent on such a huge log.

The patterns, burrs and cats paw markings on this timber rival anything available any where else in the world, the tree was properly nearly 500 years old, i believe this truly a once in a life time opportunity to own this timber, so if you have considered something extraordinary, whether it be a table the full size of the slab or just part, then this would be for you, i will properly never come across timber of this quality again.

would have looked forward to cutting that myself and selling it,all except the best slice,which looks like you have a mind on saving too.
