    Cap,   we do lots of maple wood tops.  Make sure to relief the back side with some kerf cuts to reduce warping.    For a 4' top we usualy join 2   25.5 inchers.

    also add some support on overhangs as these types of tops will sag in no time.
     
    once all completed treat the top with  "daleys" wood top sealer and give the jar to the customer.

    I'm sure you know all this,  just offering some help.   

    We usualy buy the blanks from our local supplier,  hassle free for us since it all comes from an outside supplier and I don'r have to line up shipping or receiving.

    Lilly,  I am not aware of specific oil only the Daleys product.  We use to use digestible mineral oil (drug stores have it)  but it left a residue.    We did an entire kitchen for a baker,  she said one has to becareful not to oil tops since  food type oils will render over time and  harbor bacteria.  As a baker she used lots of shortning,  she simply scraped the surface area she used the most and re treated it with the Daleys.   There was lots of direct food contact on these tops.     We also just did a floating bar/island with a wood top.  I go to this place often to sample thier latest brew recipies,  they have not been using the sealer I gave them and.......lets just say red wine makes for  a lovley "patina"

    We have ordered tops from Quinique in the past. I didn't get to see the last one but apparently it was an absolutely beautiful black walnut.

    Eli,   nice table.  I'd love to see what the leg/support  design looks like.
      Scoring old lumber is rare up here,  great use of materials.

    My wife is wanting a new table,  3 guitars to finish first

    These  local birch wood lav tops are in the same house as the concrete tops .   In my opinion these tops would have been better served to have had  a couple coats of epoxy then 2 coats of satin poly.   Instead they used some sort of oil.  As you can see, hidious stains.     We are to replace the entire set up with a  fir custom cabinet and "copper canyon" top.   The bowl is localy made,  I wanted to undermount it in the new top.   The customer has them throughout the house and wanted something else.
