St. Luke Missionary church

This table  came from an oak tree that provided shade to the St. Luke Missionary Church for over 120 years.  Several years ago, it became a risk to the church and had to come down.  We cut the 45" wide log into slabs, debarked each with a draw knife, and stacked them to air dry for years.  We recently took them to the kiln for a month of the final cure.  For several months we've been turning this historic slab into a functional piece of furniture.  You might be able to see the ribbon that was awarded at the Arts Alive juried art competition recently.
